“Moonshiners” star Josh Owens is opening up about a very scary motorcycle crash that left him in pieces … saying he suffered a broken neck, back, arm and legs.
Josh posted a video Monday from his hospital bed … updating his followers for the first time on his condition after his severely violent accident earlier this month.
JO only showed off one of his wounds, but it’s pretty insane … he turned the camera on his leg, which had about 50 staples and a huge scar.

Gory as hell, for sure … and Josh admitted he’s hanging on by a thread, but he’s also confident he’ll bounce back.
Josh crashed on March 4, while taking part in a motorcycle race at Florida’s Daytona International Speedway.

Shortly after, his “Moonshiners” co-star Richard Landry said he’d talked to some people who talked to family members … who said Josh was doing okay, but was not out of the woods yet. One of Josh’s friends started a GoFundMe to help cover what’s sure to be a hefty hospital bill, as Josh doesn’t have health insurance … according to his friend.
Despite all that, he’s staying remarkably positive.
In the video update, Josh says it’s only by the grace of God he survived the wreck, and adds … “I’m still here and I love ya’ll.”
Get well soon, Josh!
