FALLSTON -- A man died Saturday of injuries he received when he drove through a stop sign and his car crashed into an ambulance, state police said yesterday.

Police said Richard Wilson, 60, of the first block of Bonnie Ave. in Bel Air was driving a 1994 Mitsubishi west on Watervale Road at 9: 15 a.m. when he ran the stop sign and struck a Norrisville Volunteer Fire Company ambulance headed north on Fallston Road.

The impact caused both vehicles to overturn into a ditch, with the ambulance landing on top of the car, police said.

Wilson, who was trapped in the car for nearly an hour, was flown by helicopter to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died about 2 p.m., police said.

The three medics in the ambulance were treated at Fallston General Hospital for minor injuries and released, officers said.
