A woman whose car he hit was hospitalized in critical condition, and at least a dozen high school students and their bus driver were taken to Stamford Hospital.

A nurse manager at Stamford Hospital said the truck driver was also hospitalized in critical condition and 22 others were treated for minor injuries.

Police identified the truck driver only as a 30-year-old Stamford resident who had taken his employer's vehicle.

The driver "hit everything that could be hit," including parked cars, signs and parking meters, Stamford police Capt. Brian McElligott told the Stamford Advocate.

"He had a cigarette in his mouth and two hands on the wheel," Dominick Colandro, a local deli owner, told the Advocate. "He was in a rage. It looked like he was on a mission."
