"Storage Wars" star Barry Weiss is attempting to recover from a really bad motorcycle accident that landed him in the hospital with broken bones and other internal injuries according to reports from TMZ.
Barry Weiss has to be the most beloved Storage Wars character. He made his fortune through fruits and vegetables, believe it or not;
"'I owned a produce company,' Barry told AOL in an interview, 'and we exported and imported, my brother and myself. I did that for years.'"
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the incident happened on Wednesday around 2:30 PM in the Los Feliz area where he and another friend were each riding bikes. Apparently a car pulled out from a parking space, allegedly without looking, and Barry and his friend slammed into the back of the car. Both went down.
Barry's friend posted a video from the crash scene taken moments after the accident. In a separate post showing him in the hospital bed, Jamie says he got lucky with only a broken knee, elbow and wrist. He says Barry's in a much worse condition with a serious chest and leg trauma.
TMZ learned that Barry was transported to an L.A. hospital, and he's currently in the ICU, but he's in stable condition. Drugs and alcohol are NOT a factor.
Some of Barry's Storage Wars co-stars have responded to the news of Barry's accident on social media. Here is a collection of what I could find:
Barry and Jamie Robinson, his friend who was in the crash with him, are no strangers to riding together. Barry previously invited Jamie to his house where they reminisce and looked over his amazing bike collection.
Of course, the two would later ride together as well. You can watch the video here:
Barry earned the nickname 'The Collector' on Storage Wars. It certainly does justice to his hobby of collections eccentric cars, bikes, and antiques. With an extravagant net worth, the antique collector has a car collection as well.
