Kevin Hart, US comedian and actor, is “awake” and currently “recovering” after successfully undergoing a back surgery.
The 41-year-old comedian had suffered a ‘major back injury’ after his vintage car veered off the highway in Malibu Hills, crashed through a wooden fence, and plunged down a gully on Sunday.
According to TMZ, Kevin is currently recuperating in hospital after undergoing the surgery on Sunday.
Eniko Parrish, Hart’s wife, also told the news outlet that her husband is “now awake” and is expected to make a full recovery.
“He’s gonna be just fine. He’s good, everybody’s good. Thank God,” said Eniko, who has a son with Hart.
“He’s fine, he’s awake.”
According to The Blast, doctors are hopeful Hart would recover from his injuries since he didn’t suffer any spinal cord damage during the horrifying car collision.
Following the crash, the police officers who went to the scene had revealed that Hart left by himself to get medical attention while the crumpled vehicle trapped Rebecca Broxterman, a personal trainer to Hart and his wife, alongside Jared Black, Hart’s friend, who drove the vehicle.
“Black was turning when he immediately lost control of the vehicle, and the Plymouth left the road and rolled over down the northern embankment. Two of the three occupants were trapped in the vehicle. The remaining occupant and owner of the vehicle left the scene to get medical attention,” they said.
