Beloved Storage Wars star Barry Weiss is recovering in a California hospital after reportedly suffering multiple broken bones, chest, and leg trauma from a motorcycle accident on Thursday.
Barry was riding with his friend Jamie Robinson of MotoGeo at the time of the accident. “Not a good day at the office,” Jamie captioned a photo of himself in the hospital after the accident, “a serious crash today with my friend Barry Weiss when a car pulled out directly in front of us and took our road away.”
Jamie continues: “I got lucky, only a broken knee, elbow and wrist, Barry is much worse and has serious chest and leg trauma 👎 Please send your prays to Barry 🙏”
TMZ reported that Barry was admitted to the ICU and was in stable condition when the story first broke.
In addition to the photo from the hospital, Jamie also shared photos and video from the scene of the crash, including clips of Barry Weiss in the ambulance. Here are Jamie’s posts:

Barry and Jamie Robinson are no strangers to riding together. Barry previously invited Jamie to his house where they reminisced about Barry’s long history with motorcycles and looked over his amazing Triumph-centric collection.
Of course, the two would later ride together as well. The interactions were captured on video for MotoGeo and shared on Youtube last year:
We’ve been fans of Barry Weiss for A LONG time and we certainly wish him a very speedy recovery so that he can be back out in the world making it a better, more interesting, and more humorous place for the rest of us!
