Michael Norwood was driving the police car about 4:30 p.m. when the collision took place at William Street and Jefferson Avenue.

The motorcyclist was taken to Erie County Medical Center, where he was last reported in critical condition. Norwood was treated for minor injuries.

He and a partner, Moe Badger, are known as Buffalo's singing cops. Their online video singing earlier this year went viral, leading to a number of personal appearances, including on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and a story on the "CBS Evening News" anchored by Town of Tonawanda native Jeff Glor in April.
