A 29-year-old New Windsor man died Monday after fleeing police in Finksburg, the Carroll County Sheriff's Office said.

The man ignored a deputy's attempts to pull him over at 6:25 a.m. as he sped onto Old Gamber Road. The driver turned right onto Old Westminster Pike, into a parking lot in the 2200 block of Baltimore Boulevard and back on to Baltimore Boulevard when the Dodge Ram he was driving struck an eastbound Ford van.

The drivers of both vehicles were transported by ambulance to Carroll Hospital Center, where the 29-year-old man died as a result of the injuries he sustained in the accident. The second driver, a 23-year-old Westminster man, was treated and released, authorities said.

The names of the men involved in the accident were not released.

Anyone with information on the collision is asked to call Cpl. Glenn Day at 410-386-2900 or email him at
