Actor Kevin Hart seriously injured in car crash


Actor-comedian Kevin Hart has been injured in the crash of a vintage muscle car in the hills above Malibu.

A California Highway Patrol collision report says the 40-year-old Hart was a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that went off Mulholland Highway and rolled down an embankment around 12:45 a.m. Sunday.

The report says Hart and the driver, 28-year-old Jared Black, both suffered “major back injuries” and were taken to hospitals.

Another passenger, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.

The CHP report says the car immediately went out of control as it turned from a canyon road onto the highway.

Hart's Plymouth Barracuda was found in a gully.  

Although it is his car, Hart was not driving at the time of the incident according to police, and the driver was not intoxicated.  

Police have said both Hart and the driver had "major back injuries" after the fire department sawed off the roof to free the three passengers inside.

A representative for Hart didn’t immediately reply to messages.

The crash was first reported by TMZ.
