Actor Kevin Hart has finally broken his silence over the car crash incident that caused him a serious back injury. Hart was hospitalised last month after the vintage car he was a passenger in veered into an embankment in Malibu Hills, California. Jared Black and Rebecca Broxterman accompanied him at the time of accident.
After spending 10 days at the hospital, Hart was discharged following which he underwent physical therapy at a rehabilitation facility. The actor released a statement through his attorney Andrew Brettler and wished the two speedy recovery. Black, who was driving the vehicle, had also sustained serious back injury.
"I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery," Hart said. Brettler told the media that Hart will not be fully back to work until early 2020.
"While he's doing a little work here and there for the film, he does not expect to be fully back to work until the new year," Brettler added. Though the actor has not fully recovered, he recently resumed work and shot promotional material for his upcoming film 'Jumanji: The Next Level'.
Meanwhile, a California Highway Patrol report has found that Black was "recklessly" driving the car that led to the accident, according to several sources. Investigators also say that the passengers in the car were not wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.
