A 36-year-old Baltimore County man died Sunday night after he lost control of his truck and crashed down an embankment on Mount Carmel Road, according to police. Richard Winkler III, of the 3200 block of Mount Carmel Road, was driving his 1990 Chevy pickup in the westbound lane near Masemore Road in Parkton about 11:10 p.m. when the truck crossed the center line, overturned and rolled down an embankment, a police spokesman said. Winkler was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are unsure whether the record-breaking snow that pummeled the region played a part in the accident.
