Actor Kevin Hart was involved in a car crash in Malibu during the early morning hours of Sunday, September 1, In Touch can confirm. According to the collision report from the State of California Department of California Highway Patrol, Hart, 40, was in the car along with two other people at the time of the accident, and he was taken to the Dignity Health – Northridge Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles where he was treated for “major” injuries that he suffered in the crash.
According to the police report, Hart was in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda with a male and female friend. They were driving on the windy Mulholland Highway at around 12:45 a.m., when the male friend who was driving the vehicle lost control. The Plymouth went off the side of the road and rolled over down into an embankment. Hart’s friends were trapped inside of the car, but Hart was able to get out safely. He then left the scene to his nearby home to seek medical attention. The driver was not under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.
Hart and the male friend both “sustained major back injuries,” according to the report, and the female friend only complained of suffering from pain.
Just hours before the crash, Hart posted a video clip of a male friend behind the driver’s seat of the blue car. In the clip, a man could be heard off camera telling the driver to “cool out” when the tires of the car started to screech.
The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star purchased the vintage car as a gift to himself for his 40th birthday in July and he showed it off on Instagram. “I added some more muscle to the family for my 40th … welcome home ‘Menace’ #MuscleCarLover,” he captioned a photo of himself and his new ride.
