Kevin Hart Will Require “Extensive Physical Therapy” After Car Crash
The 40-year-old actor underwent surgery on his back at the weekend to rectify the injuries he sustained when his car veered off the Mulholland Highway in Malibu. Although the surgery was a success, he will need physical therapy in the coming weeks.
According to TMZ, Kevin is expected to be released from the hospital by the end of this week.
Kevin was in the car with two other people – driver Jared Black and Black’s fiancee Rebecca Broxterman – when his Plymouth Barracuda veered off the highway in Malibu Hills, California, and ended up in a gully about 10 feet off the road.
A witness claimed they heard the tires straining followed by the sound of the car smashing through wooden fencing. In a photo obtained by the site, there appear to be marks on the road that show exactly where the vehicle careered into the fence and ended up in a gully 10 feet off the road.
Both Kevin and Jared were taken to hospital after sustaining “major back injuries”, but Rebecca – who is the personal trainer for Kevin’s wife Eniko – did not need medical treatment.
Meanwhile, Eniko has assured fans that Kevin is “doing great and he’s going to be just fine” after the accident.
She added that the ‘Night School’ star is awake and talking but will need to stay in hospital for a little while in order to recuperate from the surgery and recover from the stress of the crash.
Kevin had previously taken to social media over the weekend to post a video of himself driving the classic car which he bought back in July as a 40th birthday gift to himself.
