Actor and comedian Kevin Hart has been treated for “major back injuries” after being caught up in a horror car crash in Los Angeles in the early hours of Sunday morning.
According to TMZ, the Jumanji star was a passenger in one of his classic cars — a blue Plymouth Barracuda — when the driver lost control and swerved off the Mulholland Highway in Malibu Hills, crashing through a wooden fence and plunging down a gully around 1 am.
TMZ reports that the driver of the car and a female passenger were found “pinned in their seats” under the crushed roof, with the fire department forced to saw off the top of the car to free them.
Authorities also confirmed to the outlet that while the car belongs to Hart, he wasn’t driving — and that both he and the driver, his friend Jared Black, suffered “major back injuries.”
Police also told Entertainment Tonight that Black was “determined not to be under the influence of alcohol.”
The third passenger, a woman, did not require hospital treatment.
