Kevin Hart is reportedly recovering in hospital from his injuries after being involved in a serious car accident in California in the early hours of Sunday morning.
TMZ is reporting that the US comedian and actor has undergone back surgery after he suffered “major back injuries” when the car he was a passenger in veered off the road.
A source told TMZ that doctors completed successful back surgery on Kevin on Sunday evening. Another source reportedly said that he will spend a few days in hospital recovering.
Kevin’s friend Jared Black had reportedly been driving Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when the car lost control, smashed through a fence and landed in a ditch, leaving the roof crushed upon impact.
Hart and Black were both injured in the accident. Black’s fiance Rebecca Broxterman was also a passenger in the car but didn’t suffer any major injuries.
TMZ spoke with Kevin’s wife Eniko Hart outside the hospital to get an update on his current condition.
She told them that he’s “going to be just fine” and she confirmed that Kevin is awake and recovering.
Jared Black was airlifted to UCLA Medical Centre following the accident where it’s believed he’s still recovering and is surrounded by family.
