Kevin Hart was involved in a serious car accident early Sunday (Sep. 1) that left the comedian hospitalized with “major back injuries” … and judging by the photos of the crash scene, it’s a miracle anyone made it out alive.
Hart was reportedly a passenger in his Plymouth Barracuda when the vehicle went into a ditch in Malibu Hills around 1 a.m.
Hart and two others were trapped in the car and had to be rescued, police said.
According to TMZ, the car smashed through a fence along the highway and landed deep in a ravine about 10 feet from the road.
You can see the extensive damage to the vehicle in the photo below:
Police said there were two other people in the car, including the driver, and Kevin and the driver both suffered “major back injuries.”
The third person was a woman who didn’t require hospital treatment. Police also confirmed the driver hadn’t been drinking.
Kevin was reportedly the first person to exit the vehicle following the crash, and a witness said a member of his security showed up in an SUV and picked him up from the roadside to take him home “to get medical attention.” He was eventually treated at a hospital, TMZ reported.
