Terrifying moment car smashes through gym into man on treadmill
A man warming up on a treadmill for a group fitness class said he felt lucky to be alive after a car crashed through the wall of his Los Angeles gym, knocking him off the machine.
Samuel Kiwasz was at Anytime Fitness in Culver City on March 29 2019 when a red SUV came careening through the wall and ploughed straight into his treadmill.
"It's a miracle that I'm alive," Kiwasz told local media.
"All of a sudden there was this loud crash and the glass came flying and I got hit ... and I got shoved back and I went flying and rolled to the side so I wouldn't get crushed."
The driver allegedly attempted to leave the scene but was stopped by an off-duty police officer.
She later told police that her brakes failed, according to local media.
