Kevin Hart Undergoes Surgery After Suffering Injuries in Car Crash

A source tells PEOPLE that the actor is now in recovery after surgery, which dealt with his back injuries, TMZ reports. Hart is expected to stay in the hospital for a few days as he recovers, according to the outlet.

Hart, 40, was hurt when his vintage Plymouth Barracuda veered off the road in California early Sunday morning. The actor was a passenger in his car when its driver, friend Jared Black, lost control and crashed through wooden fencing just before 1 a.m. on Mulholland Highway in Malibu, a spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol said.

The blue Barracuda crashed about 10 feet off the road and into a ditch, leaving Black and the comedian with “major back injuries,” TMZ reported on Sunday.

A third occupant, Black’s fiancĂ© Rebecca Broxterman, was unharmed, according to E! News, which also reported that Hart left the scene and headed to his nearby home, but was later treated for his injuries at a local hospital.

Photos of the accident obtained by TMZ show the blue car’s roof completely crushed by the impact of the crash, with the rest of the vehicle appearing as a mangled wreck with a completely shattered windshield.

Authorities told Entertainment Tonight that Black was “determined not to be under the influence of alcohol.”

The Night School actor bought himself the Barracuda in July as a 40th birthday present, and showed it off on Instagram shortly after making the big purchase, noting he’d nicknamed it “Menace.”
