US comedian Kevin Hart was involved in a horror car accident which left him with three spinal fracture, over the weekend in Los Angeles.
According to reports, Kevin Hart suffered “major back injuries” and three spinal fracture after his vintage car careered off the road into a ditch at 1am on Sunday.
Hart, who was not driving the vehicle, was admitted to hospital and his wife, Eniko Parrish, later told TMZ that he was doing “great” and is expected to make a full recovery.
Sources with direct knowledge tell us Kevin’s Sunday night surgery involved fusing the fractures … 2 of them in the thoracic section of his spine, and 1 in the lumbar. Although the procedure was a success, Kevin is still going through hell. We’re told he has to be heavily medicated because the pain is just that intense.
It has also been reported that he will require months of physical rehabilitation.
A man identified as Jared Black was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash. Black’s fiancée, Rebecca Broxterman, was also in the car. The driver was transferred to a local medical facility and purportedly suffered a “major back” injury as well. Broxterman did not have to be treated, according to reports.
