A car collided with a motorcyclist and smashed into Retro Fitness in Williamsburg this afternoon, spraying the corner of Berry and North 3rd Street with glass.
The motorcyclist, who preferred not to be named, said that he was coming down Berry Street around 12:30 p.m. when a woman who didn’t see him advanced into the intersection. The vehicles collided, sending the Honda Civic with Jersey plates into the front of the building and bending a support beam. The storefront’s windowpane as well as the car’s were shattered, but the rattled biker said nobody was hurt and no ambulances were needed.
“It was a simple automobile accident,” he told us, though he admitted, “It got my adrenaline up.”
The gym was still doing business when we stopped by around 1:30 p.m. According to an employee at the front counter, nobody saw the accident occur. “We heard it,” she said.
