A private ambulance driver was ejected when a garbage truck ran a stop sign and slammed into his rig early Monday afternoon in Norwood, authorities said.

The driver for Paramus-based MP Care was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with what Police Chief Jeffrey Krapels said was a possible broken hip after the crash at Broadway and Summit Street around 12:45 p.m.

He was alone in the rig, not wearing a seat belt, when the driver of the Teaneck-based Interstate Waste Services garbage truck ignored the stop sign, Krapels said.

The truck driver and a passenger weren't injured, the chief said.

Police were investigating at the scene.
