Kevin Hart was in a serious car accident on Sunday morning, and is now in the hospital, recovering from back surgery. Kevin’s friend Jared Black was driving Kevin’s vintage Barracuda when he careened off the road and crashed. Jared also suffered serious back injuries and was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center, where his condition is not known. Rebecca Broxterman, who is Jared’s fiancee and the personal trainer of Kevin’s wife Eniko Parrish, was also in the car, but only suffered minor injuries. The car on the other hand looks like it got the Charlie Sheen Car-In-A-Ditch Special ie: all the way FUCKED UP.
Here’s some before and after shots of Kevin’s car:
According to People, Jared lost control of the Barracuda and crashed through a wooden fence on Mulholland Highway in Malibu.
Kevin Hart is out of surgery following a late-night car crash that left him with “major back injuries.”
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.
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.
Initial reports claimed that Jared was not boozing, and that the crash may have had something to do with Kevin naming his really fancy-looking Big Wheels “Menace.”
But a witness tells TMZ that they were nearby during the crash, and heard the tires of the car screeching before it slammed into the fence. CHP is now investigating “speed” as a reason for the crash. And as everyone made a million “But why wasn’t Kevin Hart in his baby carseat?!” jokes, his wife told the paps that he’s awake, he’s going to be fine, and everybody’s good.
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.”
Kevin has had a messy couple of years from getting extorted for having an alleged affair to the Oscars revoking his hosting gig after some homophobic tweets came to light. That said, he’s still married and still getting paid and he’s got a forever friend in Ellen Degeneres. So he will be probably be just fine after this crash and in the meantime, he might want to let Jeep tree crasher Harvey Weinstein borrow another one of his “Menaces.”
