Josh's fast-paced lifestyle has resulted in more than one serious accident.

Besides making moonshine, one sad hallmark of Josh's life over the past few years has been his proclivity for serious accidents. According to The Daytona Beach News-Journal, Josh was hospitalized at Halifax Health Medical Center after sustaining injuries from a motorcycle accident during the infamous Daytona Bike Week.

The star was thrown from an antique motorcycle while riding and broke all but one of his ribs, his collarbone, and his shoulder blade. On top of that, he also punctured a lung and stripped skin on his fingers down to the bone. Fortunately, Josh made a full recovery.

That wasn't Josh's only recent accident, however. Just the year prior, it was reported by Siouxland News that his truck and trailer caught on fire. He sustained no injuries that time around.

One of the earliest known accidents involving Josh was back in 2016 when he lost his index finger. This was a result of a grinding wheel exploding, according to a friend of the moonshiner, but the star himself never spoke out about what went down.

If there's one thing that's clear from all of this, it's that Josh may be having fun with his various jobs and hobbies, but they certainly don't come without serious risks.

Check out Josh and the rest of the Moonshiners cast on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on the Discovery Channel.
