Yesterday, we reported that "Storage Wars" star Barry Weiss had been in a motorcycle crash. Now, the report comes out that it was more serious than previously thought.

Around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Weiss was riding with a friend in Los Feliz, California. According to his friend's Instagram post, they were riding when a car pulled out in front of them and they hit it.

After the accident, they were transported to the ICU at a local hospital, reported PEOPLE. Weiss is in stable condition, but he's not out of the woods.

His friend wrote, "I got lucky, only a broken knee, elbow and wrist, Barry is much worse and has serious chest and leg trauma."

He added a request, "Please send your prays to Barry."

A representative from the Los Angeles Police Department did not have any additional information about the accident. A&E also did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

His friend also shared various photos from the crash.

He wrote, “After the black SUV (left corner) stopped and crossed our paths, this is the split second after, the parked car stopped me quickly."

Weiss appeared on Storage Wars from seasons 1-4. He then went on to star in spinoff series Storage Wars: Barry Strikes Back, which ran for one season.

Please join us in praying for a full recovery for Weiss.
