Several hurt as truck careens through Stamford
STAMFORD, Conn. (WABC) -- Police say at least a dozen Connecticut high school students are hurt after a man got into a fight with his girlfriend, took a box truck from work then crashed into at least 12 cars and a school bus in Stamford.
The Stamford Advocate reports that the students and their bus driver were taken to Stamford Hospital for minor injuries. The suspect and a woman whose car he hit were also in critical condition in the hospital Tuesday.
Police identified the truck driver only as a 30-year-old Stamford resident.
Stamford police Capt. Brian McElligott said the driver "hit everything that could be hit," including parked cars, signs and parking meters.
Dominick Colandro, a local deli owner, says the driver had "a cigarette in his mouth and two hands on the wheel. He was in a rage."
