Stolen Firetruck

I read this fire related article this morning on theblaze.com


According to the story, authorities say a man who was naked stole a fire truck at an apartment complex in South Carolina and sped away, killing a pedestrian who was walking on a sidewalk.

Police say the driver was pulled from the fire truck after it crashed into trees and he began fighting with police and paramedics. A Beaufort police supervisor was not immediately available Saturday to confirm the driver’s identity.

The man jumped behind the wheel of the fire truck after firefighters with the Beaufort-Port Royal Fire Department responded to an apartment complex.

This a tragic story and our thoughts go out to family of the pedestrian who was struck and killed.
