On January 5, 2018, Barrington was stopped at a red light when he was rear-ended on Middle Country Road in the town of Brookhaven in Suffolk County, New York. Barrington was in the far-right lane when the accident occurred, and the impact caused his vehicle to spin out of control and hit another car in the left lane. The crash was so severe that it blew out his car windows. Apparently, the driver that rear-ended Barrington had passed out and crashed into Barrington as a result.

The surgery improved his range of motion, but he still felt weak compared to before the accident.
