ACCORDING to People magazine, Hart was a passenger in his vintage Plymouth Barracuda when the vehicle driven by his friend, Jared Black, veered off the road and landed in a ditch.
The car crashed through a wooden fencing just before 1am on Mulholland Highway in Malibu. Black’s fiancee Rebecca Broxterman who was also in the car was reported unharmed.
According to E! News, Hart left the crash scene and headed to his nearby home before being treated for injuries at a local hospital.
The car was said to be a mangled wreck with the windshield completely shattered.
Kevin Hart’s wife Eniko Parrish told reporters outside the hospital that Hart was awake and doing great.
“He’s gonna be just fine. He’s good, everybody’s good. Thank god,” she said to reporters after returning from a coffee run. “He’s fine, he’s awake.”
The authorities reported that Black was “determined not to be under the influence of alcohol.”
Hart bought the vintage car as his 40th birthday present in July and showed off his new ride on Instagram. He nicknamed the car “Menace.”
Celebrities sent well wishes to the US comedian and actor, including Jumanji co-star Dwayne Johnson.
“Stop messing with my emotions brother @kevinhart4real. We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong,” Johnson wrote on Instagram.
