Kevin Hart is 'awake and doing fine' in hospital after shock car collision
Kevin Hart is ‘awake’ and doing ‘just fine’ in hospital after being involved in a horrifying car collision.
The comedian, 41, suffered a ‘major back injury’ after his vintage car reportedly careered off the road into a ditch at 1am on Sunday.
Kevin’s wife, Eniko Parrish, told TMZ that the actor is doing ‘great’ and is expected to make a full recovery after his Plymouth Barracuda smashed through a wooden fence.
‘He’s gonna be just fine. He’s good, everybody’s good. Thank God,’ she told reporters outside hospital.
Eniko, who has a 21-month-old son Kenzo with Kevin, added: ‘He’s fine, he’s awake.’
Kevin’s muscle car veered off the Mulholland Highway in Malibu Hills and ended up in a gully about 10 feet off the road on Sunday.
The Ride Along star was in the car with two other people – one of whom was driving.
Both Kevin and the driver were taken to hospital to treat ‘major back injuries’, but the third person did not need medical treatment.
Terrifying pictures of the wreckage showed that the roof was completely destroyed, with only the smashed windshield remaining.
According to The Blast, doctors believe Hart can recover from his injuries as he didn’t suffer any spinal cord damage during the crash.
Kevin – who shares Heaven, 14, and Hendrix, 11, with his ex-wife Torrei Hart – may still need surgery for his injuries, and doctors are currently discussing his medical options.
The Night School star bought the car back in July as a 40th birthday gift to himself.
Kevin’s close friend, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, shared a touching message to his pal after the crash.
Posting a picture of the two of them together, the Hobbs & Shaw star wrote: ‘Stop messing with my emotions brother. We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong.’
Dwayne stars alongside Kevin in the upcoming Jumanji sequel, which is due out later this year.
