Former Channel 11/WBAL news anchor Sade Baderinwa was seriously injured Friday when she was struck by a hit-and-run vehicle. She was covering neighborhood flooding in Hackensack, New Jersey at about 9:30 PM. Baderinwa was working on a report for the 11 PM newscast on NYC's WABC-TV. Reportedly, she was thrown about 10 feet into flood waters. Baderinwa was rushed to Hackensack University Medical Center. On Saturday, her condition was listed as stable. According to abclocal.go.com/wabc: "We were told late Friday that Sade was awake, conscious, and being treated at a trauma unit where she was undergoing a battery of tests... The driver reportedly was traveling at a high rate of speed, and did not stop. We are told the car was found a short time later. The driver is still at large." The car went through a barricade on a flooded street. Baderinwa, a Baltimore native, left Channel 11 last year. She once worked at Channel 9/WUSA.
