US comedian Kevin Hart has suffered a serious back injury as a result of a car crash which happened shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday, on Mulholland Highway in southern California, a People report says.
According to the report, Hart was riding as a passenger in his newly-bought vintage 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, when the driver, Jared Black, lost control and veered off the road, crashing through wooden fencing directly into the abyss below.
Judging by photos posted online, it is a miracle that everyone in the car survived the crash: the roof and the windshield are completely crushed, and the car’s front end is an indiscernible mess.

The police say Black, who also suffered “major back injuries,” was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of crash. Rebecca Broxtermann, Black’s bride and Hart’s wife’s personal trainer, survived the incident unscathed.
Hart and Black were taken to different hospitals for medical attention.
Hart bought the blue classic US Plymouth Barracuda muscle car this July as a birthday present to himself, People report says, making a boasting Instagram about his new ride, which he named “Menace.”
