One of the original stars of the A&E reality show “Storage Wars” was hospitalized with what’s described as broken bones and other internal injuries following a traffic collision. TMZ reports that Barry Weiss was involved in a serious motorcycle accident Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles.
“Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the incident went down Wednesday around 2:30 p.m. in the Los Feliz area where he and another friend were each riding bikes,” TMZ reports. “We’re told a car pulled out from a parking space, apparently without looking, and Barry and his friend slammed into the back of the car. Both went down.”
Weiss’ friend, identified as Jamie, reportedly suffered a broken knee, elbow and wrist. “He says Barry’s in a much worse condition with a serious chest and leg trauma,” TMZ adds, citing an Instagram post.
Weiss was said to be in the ICU in stable condition.
“Barry, the eccentric and lifelong antique collector, appeared in seasons 1-4 of ‘Storage Wars’ … often riding in classic cars,” TMZ notes. “He left the hit A&E show and had a short-lived spinoff called ‘Barry’d Treasure.’ BTW, he’s also Jesse James’ godfather.”
