The case of the stolen fire truck in Port Royal, South Carolina has resulted in a lawsuit – but the good news is the fire department was not named.
Jonas Armstrong was seriously injured when a Port Royal fire truck driven by Kalvin Hunt collided with his vehicle on February 22, 2012. At the time Hunt was naked and had stolen the truck from the scene of an incident where it was parked idling.
Hunt, a former Marine with psychological issues, had escaped from a US Navy Hospital. The suit alleges that Case Pro Inc.; the U.S. Naval Hospital in Beaufort, S.C.; the United States, and the South Carolina Division of Veterans Affairs were negligent in allowing Hunt to escape.
The 23 page suit was filed last Tuesday in US District Court in South Carolina.
