US comedian and actor Kevin Hart is reportedly recovering after being involved in a serious car accident.

E! News is reporting that Hart’s car, a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, was involved in a smash in the early hours of Sunday morning.

It’s believed that his friend Jared Black was driving at the time and that Hart and a third person, Rebecca Broxterman, were passengers in the vehicle.

According to TMZ, the car lost control and veered off the road, smashing through a fence and landing in a ditch. They also report that the food was crushed upon impact.

The California Highway Patrol have reportedly told E! News that Hart was taken to his home for treatment and was later taken to hospital. While it’s believed Broxterman was not injured, both Hart and Black reportedly suffered “major back injuries”.

Police have said that Black was not “under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision”.

The car was a 40th birthday present that Kevin bought for himself back in July, showing it off on Instagram.


We hope they all have a speedy recovery!
