WHFS-FM’s Ed Norris injured from motorcycle crash


The CBS Radio/Baltimore talker and former high ranking state and Baltimore City police official Ed Norris was injured in a traffic accident in northern Harford County, MD 4/25.

He was in serious condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center Thursday morning, a spokesperson told The Baltimore Sun.

Maryland State Police confirmed that Norris was driving a motorcycle and was injured when he swerved to avoid colliding with a box truck shortly after 2:30 p.m.

The duty officer at the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack confirmed the identity of Norris, the morning drive host on the highly-rated Norris and Davis Show on WHFS 105.7-FM, The Fan, who formerly commanded the State Police and before then was Baltimore City City’s Police Commissioner.

Norris was flown to shock trauma by a State Police Medivac. The state police duty officer said Norris’ injuries were non-life threatening, according to reports from troopers at the scene.

“There were no serious injuries,” the duty officer said. “He was alert and talking to everyone. He may have suffered a broken arm.”

Norris was traveling north on Route 1 on a 2013 Victory motorcycle approaching an intersection. According to the State Police news release, the GMC truck “failed to yield the to the Victory motorcycle. To avoid a collision directly with the vehicle, the operator of the motorcycle swerved and put the motorcycle into a skid. The motorcycle did not collide with any other vehicle.”

Speaking Thursday on the Norris and Davis radio show, co-host Steve Davis said he had spent several hours with Norris at the hospital Wednesday after the crash: “I talked with Ed,” he said, adding, “He was awake and alert.”

He said he wouldn’t talk about Norris’ injuries, adding, “We’ll let him tell you about them” when he returns to the radio show.
