On Sunday, September 1st, Actor and Comedian, Kevin Hart was in a car accident along with his close friend Jared Black. Hart’s friend was the one who was driving the vehicle at the time and lost control of the wheel on a curvy road, Mulholland Highway, in Malibu Hills. While Hart was able to walk away from the accident, he was hospitalized soon thereafter.
Unfortunately, Hart was sent to the hospital with major injuries after sustaining substantial damage to his spinal cord. He has since undergone spinal surgery so that two of his spinal cords could be fused together. He is going to need to go through substantial physical therapy so that he is able to fully recover, but luckily he did not suffer from any form of paralysis.
Although he suffered three spinal in, his wife Eniko Hart has stated that he is doing great and that he is going to be fine. She also went on to say that Hart was “in good spirits.” To no surprise, a multitude of celebs and Hart’s fellow colleagues poured out their well wishes.
His ‘Jumanji’ co-star The Rock took to Instagram and wrote “Stop messing with my emotions brother,” “We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong.” Superstar soccer player, David Beckham also wrote “Hey man this is why we were built for challenges like this… Stay strong good luck with the recovery. I’ll be waiting for you with a nice cold ice bath… Love to the family and anything you need I’m right here…Much love DB.”
It’s clear that Hart has the support of more than just a few of the people around him. Hopefully, he will be looking forward to a speedy recovery and getting back to starring in the movies that he loves to make and we love to laugh at.
