On April 24, Norris was on his motorcycle when he swerved to avoid colliding with a box truck in Darlington, Harford County.

Norris was flown by medevac to Shock Trauma.

"All I remember is being on the road, then I woke up in Shock Trauma with people standing around me telling me you are alive," he said.

Doctors told the former cop, police chief, state police superintendent turned radio host not only is he lucky to be alive, but he's lucky he wasn't paralyzed in the accident.

"Head injuries, brain injuries, broken ribs, broken shoulder," Norris said.

"I just want to thank everybody. I couldn't have done this without my friends and family," he said.

For now, Norris says he's taking it one day at a time.

"I don't know very much about the future, but I'm above ground," he joked.
