Barry Weiss, the star of popular TV series 'Storage Wars', is currently recovering after he met with a horrific motorcycle accident that put him in the hospital with broken bones and other internal injuries.
Authorities have informed multiple news outlets that the incident occurred on April 24 at around 2:30 p.m. in the Los Feliz area where 68-year-old Weiss and another friend of his had been riding their bikes. The incident is said to have occurred when a car was pulling out of a parking space and Weiss and his friend slammed into the back of it.
TMZ reported that they were informed by the authorities that drugs and alcohol were not a factor in this incident. They were also told that Weiss was transported to a hospital in Los Angeles where he is currently in the ICU but in a stable condition.
Weiss, a lifelong collector of antiques, has appeared on seasons 1 to 4 of 'Storage Wars' and is often seen riding in classic cars. He retired from the hit A&E show after the 4th season and had a spinoff called 'Barry'd Treasure' which was short-lived.
The year 2019 has not been a good year for any of the original cast members of 'Storage Wars'. Darrell Sheets, another member of the original cast, was hospitalized just last month after he suffered from a heart attack.
