When a motorcycle accident left Corey Davis strapped to a hospital bed seven years ago, he began to lose hope for a recovery. "This is it for the rest of my life," Davis, who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury that made him unable to walk, recalled thinking. But after six months of treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital's Outpatient NeuroRehabilitation Program, he was back on his feet. Now the race director for Saturday's Ocean Games, an ocean sports event in Ocean City , Davis continues to give back to the program that helped him return to the active lifestyle he once thought was no longer possible.

Perched on the edge of a cruising powerboat, a thrill-seeker in a tethered parachute soon is flying hundreds of feet in the air. Parasailing has grown in popularity in recent years, in places including Ocean City and Havre de Grace. But so has the number of fatal and near-fatal accidents. A federal agency said this week that licensing and regulations are needed to keep participants safe. One of the sport's pioneers agrees that without such regulation, parasailing could go the way of bungee-jumping - the industry crushed by prohibitive insurance costs.

Twenty-two pedestrians died after being hit by cars in Baltimore County in 2013 - that's a five year high, and officials say the county is on pace to match it this year. Trying to lower those numbers, county officials Thursday launched a "Heads Up! Walk Safe" campaign, urging pedestrians to obey traffic laws and be more cognizant of their surroundings while walking and biking. Pedestrians are at fault in 80 percent of crashes, officials said. "This past year, 2013, we had more fatal pedestrian crashes in Baltimore County than in the five years prior," said County Executive Kevin Kamenetz during a news conference.

With one out in the bottom of the fifth inning Saturday, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones forced the Toronto Blue Jays into a rushed throw and an error by racing down the first base line to beat out a ground ball. Then, the real fun began. When Jones turned to second base, he came face-to-face with first base umpire Hunter Wendelstedt. Jones put both arms out, tried to dodge the umpire and began to sprint down the baseline, but in the process Wendelstedt toppled backward and thudded into the infield dirt.

A Houston-based company asked Maryland for a permit to ship millions of gallons of crude oil through its South Baltimore marine terminal as the nation's oil industry surges. Another company in the Fairfield industrial area began moving crude oil in recent years from tank cars hauled by locomotives onto barges for shipment to refineries or asphalt plants. While the boom in U.S. crude oil production is helping to reduce the nation's dependence on imports, the rapidly expanding domestic transport of crude by rail and barge is raising concerns after several derailments and explosions and a barge accident that spilled crude into the Mississippi River.
