Comedian Kevin Hart might need surgery after suffering “major” injuries following a scary car crash on September 1. According to The Blast, the 40-year-old is undergoing tests to determine whether or not he’ll need to go under the knife.
In Touch confirmed on Sunday that the Jumanji actor was involved in an early-morning accident in Malibu. The collision report from the State of California Department of California Highway Patrol states Hart was in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda along with two other people — producer Jared Black and personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman — when Black, who was driving the vehicle, lost control. After crashing into an embankment, Hart managed to get out safely and seek medical attention. The driver was not under the influence of alcohol.
Prior to the incident, the A-lister posted an Instagram Story that showed him in the blue car, revving the engine. Off-camera, the man shooting the video jokingly told him to “cool out.” Hart bought the car for himself just eight weeks ago for his birthday. “I added some more muscle to the family for my 40th … welcome home ‘Menace’ #MuscleCarLover,” he captioned the shot on July 8.
Since then, fans and celebrities have sent well-wishes to the Night School actor. “Stop messing with my emotions brother @kevinhart4real,” Kevin’s friend and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle costar Dwayne Johnson wrote on Instagram on Monday. “We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong.” Meanwhile, Jamie Foxx commented on Kevin’s most recent Instagram post with three praying-hand emojis, and Bryan Cranston said, “I’ve just heard that @kevinhart4real was injured today in a car accident in Los Angeles. Let’s all send him positive energy and healing thoughts. He’s a good human. Get well soon, brother. B.”
Doctors say they’re optimistic Hart will make a full recovery.
