Comedian Kevin Hart, who suffered a back injury Sunday in a car crash in Calabasas, Calif., is expected to remain in the hospital for at least a couple more days while he recovers, according to his wife.
Eniko Hart told TMZ outside the hospital that her husband, who underwent back surgery, is “going to be just fine.”
Hart walked away from the accident early Sunday morning on L.A.’s treacherous Mulholland Highway, but was rushed to a hospital with what California Highway Patrol called a “major back injury.”
Jared Black, the man who was driving Hart’s vintage Plymouth Barracuda at the time of the accident, was pinned inside the crushed vehicle and also seriously injured. He was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center, where he is recovering.
Black’s fiancé Rebecca Broxterman, who is Hart’s wife’s personal trainer, was also in the vehicle but was not seriously injured.
