Kevin Hart suffers major injuries after car veered off the road and crashed into a ditch.
American comedian, Kevin Hart was involved in a car accident on Sunday, September 1 after his car veered off the highway into a ditch. According to TMZ, it’s a miracle that Kevin and the other passengers (a male driver, and a woman in the back seat) survived the accident looking at the accident.
Reports state that the accident happened on the dreaded Mulholland Highway at about 1am on Sunday. Kevin had reportedly been testing his 40th birthday gift, a Plymouth Barracuda, when it veered off the road, smashed through a wooden fencing along the roadside and ended up in a gully about 10 feet off the road. According to TMZ.
CBS2 and KCAL9 reporter Greg Mills sent out a video tweet of a footage showing the skid marks where the ride left the road:
