PHOTO: A pedestrian walking along Ribaut Road was struck and killed Friday afternoon by a man who stole a Port Royal firetruck as firefighters answered a medical call. Firefighters from the Beaufort-Port Royal Fire Department were sent at about 4 p.m. to Laurel Hill apartments on Ribaut Road, department spokesman Capt. John Robinson said. While firefighters were tending to the call, a man, who was not identified Friday and who witnesses said was nude, jumped into their fire engine and sped off down Ribaut Road toward Beaufort, Robinson said.
