Wife Says Kevin Hart ‘Going to Be Fine’ After Rollover Car Crash Near Calabasas
Comic actor Kevin Hart’s wife says he’s “going to be just fine” following a weekend car crash near Calabasas that left him with a major back injury.
Eniko Hart was questioned by a TMZ reporter while visiting him at the hospital Monday. She gave no details beyond that assurance, and the actor’s press representatives did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
Hart was a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that went off a highway above Malibu in the early morning hours of Sunday. It rolled down an embankment, after police said the driver lost control while turning from a canyon road onto Mulholland Highway.
“Two of the three occupants were trapped in the vehicle,” California Highway Patrol said in a report. “The remaining occupant and owner of the vehicle, Kevin Hart, left the scene to his nearby residence to get medical attention.”
The 40-year-old Hart and the car’s driver, Jared Black, both had back injuries. Another passenger, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.
