According to gym operators, a "slow Saturday" is to thank for the fact that no one was injured when a truck drove through Real Fitness Gym on Nov. 25.

Truck Crashes Full-Speed through Playa Del Rey Gym Wall

As shown in surveillance video footage, a driver lost consciousness and drove his truck full speed through the Real Fitness Gym. No one was injured.

In a bizarre series of events, a truck crashed through a gym in Playa Del Rey, California, on the morning of Nov. 25, but no one was injured.

A video of the of crash can be viewed here.

Around 9 a.m., a driver lost consciousness and drove his truck full speed through the Real Fitness Gym on Pershing Drive and Campbell Street. The two-decade-old gym on West Manchester Avenue offers personal training, group exercise and lifestyle coaching services.

"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 8:00 a.m. class had just walked out," gym representatives said in a Nov. 27 Instagram post, which also shows the dramatic video footage of the crash. "The driver wasn’t even injured. He regained consciousness and was able to walk out."

Gym staff and volunteers have since cleaned the debris, and the gym re-opened Nov. 28.

"This showing of support made us even more proud to be part of this amazing community," the Instagram post said.
