An Annapolis man has died of injuries he sustained when his Harley Davidson motorcycle crashed into a station wagon Saturday morning, Anne Arundel County police said.

Richard Joseph Davis, 36, died Tuesday at Prince George's Hospital Center.

He was riding on Route 214 in Davidsonville when his motorcycle collided with a Mercury station wagon pulling into a driveway. Davis was thrown about 55 feet, over the car's roof and onto the pavement.

Police said witnesses told them the motorcycle was speeding and had passed a truck in a no-passing zone before the crash.

Isaac Paul Elliott, 19, of Edgewater, who was driving the station wagon, was not seriously injured.
