The Beaufort Gazette reports that Jonas Armstrong is also suing Kalvin Hunt. Police say the nude Marine ran from Beaufort’s Navy hospital and took a Port Royal fire truck while firefighters were on a medical call.
Hunt has been charged with murder and grand larceny. Police say he rammed several vehicles and killed 28-year-old Justin Miller of Port Royal on Feb. 24.
Court papers say Armstrong’s leg was badly injured and his SUV was totaled when Hunt hit him during an illegal U-turn. Armstrong says officials shouldn’t have left the fire truck running while responding to a call.
