BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - A man accused of stealing a Port Royal fire truck on Feb. 24 and taking it on a fatal rampage appeared in court Friday for a bond hearing.

Police said Kalvin Hunt, 26, of Sumter, S.C., caused several crashes and fatally hit Justin Miller, 28, of Port Royal, who was walking and stopped to pick up something off the ground on Ribaut Road.

Beaufort firefighters were responding to a medical call at the Laurel Hill apartments on Ribaut Road when the Port Royal fire truck was stolen.

Hunt faces murder charges. He was released from Medical University of South Carolina on Wednesday and taken to the Beaufort County Jail.

At Friday's bond hearing, 14th Circuit Solicitor Duffie Stone asked for Hunt not to have the right to bond.

Hunt waived his right to bond.
