We are willing to bet that Kevin Hart did not want to become one of the most Googled stars in the country this year because of a car accident. The Philadelphia native was inside of his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when it crashed in Calabasas, California.
According to the California Highway Patrol, Hart was riding as a passenger in his vehicle when the driver, Jared Black, lost control when he accelerated on a California highway. The Plymouth careened over and down an embankment before slamming into a tree. Hart and Black were taken to the hospital after sustaining serious injuries. Another passenger in the vehicle, Black’s fiancée Rebecca Broxterman, did not sustain any major injuries.
None of the occupants of the vehicle were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. Kevin Hart spent a significant amount of time in the hospital following this crash and is still working on recovering from this incident.
