Truck crashes into gym in Playa Del Rey in wild video

- A truck crashed into a gym in Playa Del Rey on Saturday causing extensive damage.

It happened around 9 a.m. when the truck crashed through the Real Fitness Gym on Pershing Drive and Campdell Street.

According to LAPD officers, the driver lost control of the truck for unknown reasons.

Authorities said no one in the gym was injured.

The gym posted video to Instagram saying the gym is normally busy at that time, but since it was a holiday weekend the gym was slower than normal and everyone from the 8 a.m. class had just left. 

 

The first two videos are from Saturday morning. At around 9:00am yesterday a driver going east down the Manchester Ave. hill facing the gym lost consciousness and his truck drove full speed through the intersection and right through the wall of the gym 😮. What’s amazing about this is normally the gym is filled with people at this time but due to the holiday it was a slow Saturday and everyone from the 8:00am class had just walked out. The driver wasn’t even injured. He regained consciousness and was able to walk out. Video number 3 is from tonight and thanks to our hard working cleanup and repair crew we will be back in action tomorrow! We’d also like to thank all the members of the gym and residents of Playa del Rey who stopped in yesterday and today to check on us and even volunteered to help clean up. This showing of support made us even more proud to be part of this amazing community 😁
