Comic Actor Kevin Hart Injured in Car Crash

Kevin Hart was hospitalized on Sunday after a car crash in Calabasas, California, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Per the outlet, Hart’s driver, Jared Black, 28, lost control of the car around 12:45 a.m. Sunday while making a left turn onto the Mulholland Highway from Cold Canyon Road, smashing through a fence and sending the vehicle rolling down a northern embankment.

The outlet further added that Black and a third passenger, Rebecca Broxterman, were trapped under the collapsed roof of the car; Hart was able to get free and went to his nearby house to get help.

California Highway Patrol also added that Hart and Black were taken to separate hospitals; Broxterman was not as seriously injured and sought treatment on her own. Police say Black had not been drinking at the time of the accident.

Hart bought the car, a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, as a 40th birthday present to himself earlier this summer.

According to TMZ, Hart and Black both suffered “major back injuries”; although the comedian’s team has not yet commented on the incident.
