A doctor says it will be a year before he has fully recovered from his injuries

A physician predicts that it will take about a year for him to completely heal from the injuries he sustained. In a recent incident in September, Hart was in a car with Black and Broxterman when the vehicle went off the road and crashed into a ditch, resulting in serious back injuries for him that required surgery.

According to reports from the California Highway Patrol, even though the accident involved Hart’s car, Black, who is engaged to Hart’s wife’s personal trainer Broxterman, was found in the driver’s seat at the scene. Despite this, Hart has expressed his support and well wishes for his friends. In a statement released by his attorney, he mentioned, ‘I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery.’

Hart’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, mentioned that Hart won’t be fully returning to work until early next year. Although he is doing some work for a film, the comedian doesn’t expect to be completely back to work until the new year. The 40-year-old had to undergo spine fusion surgery to repair three fractures after the collision in Malibu, California, a few weeks ago.

There have been additional revelations about the accident, with law enforcement sources informing TMZ that none of the car’s occupants had seat belts on at the time of the crash.

Scenes from Kevin Hart's car accident in Calabasas just yards away from his house

Scenes from the car accident involving Kevin Hart in Calabasas, just a short distance from his home, have been making headlines. Law enforcement officials have determined that the vintage car involved did not have any mechanical problems, with the crash being attributed to driver error.

Following the accident, Hart left the scene while his friends, including his wife’s personal trainer Broxterman and her fiancé Black who was driving, were still stuck in the vehicle. The police investigation revealed that the car had undergone significant modifications, such as the addition of sports tires and a powerful 6.4L Hemi V-8 engine, but lacked an anti-lock braking system.

According to the crash report, there were signs that the seatbelts had not been properly worn, with excessive slack in the belts. Broxterman was reportedly found in a precarious position facing the windshield between the right passenger seat and the roof, indicating that the car was not designed to accommodate rear seat passengers. The investigation also highlighted that the belts showed fold and crease marks consistent with improper usage.

Stand-up comedian Kevin Hart, along with personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman and her fiancé Jared Black, were all involved in a car accident on September 1 that resulted in serious injuries for Hart and Black. Recent reports have indicated that none of the individuals in the vehicle were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

Following the incident, Hart expressed his well wishes for Jared and Rebecca’s speedy recovery, despite the likelihood of multiple lawsuits arising from the accident. Despite his injuries, Hart has been back to work promoting his upcoming movie, Jumanji: The Next Level.

Despite still being in pain and working with a physical therapist for his recovery, Hart is determined to fulfill his commitments and bounce back stronger than ever. While his wife Eniko Hart confirmed that he is doing well and expected to recover, sources have reported that his back surgery was a success.

The crash, which occurred when the vintage car veered off the road and into a ditch, left Hart hospitalized with major back injuries. Although the details of the accident revealed Black as the driver, Broxterman and Black were both trapped inside the vehicle when help arrived.

All three individuals involved in the accident were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment, with Hart and Black sustaining major back injuries. Thankfully, Broxterman emerged from the incident without any injuries, and Black was found not to be under the influence of any substances at the time of the crash.

Witnesses stated that a member of Kevin’s security team arrived in an SUV to pick him up. A concerned friend of Hart contacted 911, informing them that the comedian was unable to move and incoherent after the accident. The friend mentioned that the incident occurred just 20 minutes before she called, contrary to police information. Another witness who called 911 reported seeing Hart being helped out of his wrecked 1970 Plymouth Barracuda by security and then driven away in a black Escalade. California Highway Patrol revealed that Jared Black, the fiancé of Hart’s wife’s personal trainer, was in the driver’s seat upon their arrival. The caller from Hart’s home described the comedian’s condition as severe, mentioning he was not coherent and unable to move, with a possible back injury. Despite the discrepancy in the timeline, the caller stated the accident occurred outside their gated community. Photos from the scene displayed the extensive damage to the vintage car. Prior to the crash, Kevin showcased the bright blue vehicle in a video on Instagram, which he bought earlier in the year as a lavish birthday present. The California Highway Patrol intends to inspect Hart’s car to determine if new safety regulations are necessary for restored classic vehicles. This assessment process could take up to a month, including one week to disassemble the vehicle and two to three weeks to analyze the evidence and compile the report. The investigation will focus on whether the car was improperly restored and if any mechanical issues played a role in the crash.
