A Stamford man was charged with causing an accident that sent five people to the hospital, according to the Stamford Police.
The crash occurred around 7 p.m. Sunday when Kadeem Sadio, 28, was speeding southbound on Hope Street when he slammed into a vehicle pulling out of Donut Delight, said Sgt. Kenneth Jarrett.
Jarrett said the impact of the crash was so intense it spun the second car across Hope Street and into the First County Bank property, shearing the driver’s seat off of the floorboards.
Five occupants in both vehicles were transported to Stamford Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, he added.
Sadio was arrested in April by Stamford Police in a road rage incident in which a witness video led to his arrest.
In that incident, Sadio was arrested and charged with numerous motor vehicle violations after he backed into another vehicle in the area of Mission Street and then attempted to leave the scene of the accident without exchanging information, causing the other driver to confront him, Stamford Police said.
When the driver confronted Sadio, he got out of his vehicle and began punching the other operator in the face multiple times, police said.
Good Samaritans then stepped in and separated the two, but Sadio got away and attacked the driver with a shovel.
Sadio is well known for police who has prior convictions for a weapons violation, probation violation, and robbery.
