Kevin Hart was injured in a gruesome accident on September 1 this year. Gradually, he is recovering. Still, he has serious back injuries that will take time. Following, the comedian gave an official statement through his representative.
In fact, this is his first address to media after his accident and subsequent recovery.
The midnight accident injured Hart, the driver Jared Black and his fiancee Rebecca Broxterman.
The actor harbors no hard feelings towards Black. Also, he wishes recovery to the engaged couple. Evidently, he has ‘nothing but love for Jared.’
Similarly, Black suffered major back injuries. But, his 31-year-old fiancee escaped with minimum injuries.
Earlier, Black accelerated the vintage car putting three lives in peril. The car in question is named ‘Menace.’ And it was a birthday gift from Kevin to himself. The model is the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.
Reportedly, the car flipped due to reckless driving. Following, it smashed in an embankment in Malibu Hills. Further, the car crashed into a tree and turned on its roof.
However, Hart was rescued by his guards hurriedly. Subsequently, he was taken to his Hollywood Hills home. Then, his friend called 911 to admit him to the hospital.
Investigators claim that Black was in the driver’s seat. Also, his fiancee was in the back seat, which was not fit for seating.
It should be noted that Black is not accused of excessive alcohol drinking or drugs at the time of the accident. Surely, he broke the law, but till now, no charges are pressed against him.
Reportedly no one was wearing a seatbelt when the accident happened. And, if they were, the belts were worn loosely.
Furthermore, Car experts find it unusual that the car did not have proper safety measures. Firstly, the car had no anti-lock braking system. Secondly, the 720 horsepower vehicle was not equipped with a five-point harness and a roll cage.
Conversely, a safe car would have prevented the injuries incurred.
However, Kevin is now recovering. He is taking physiotherapy and rehabilitation for his back.
In conclusion, he is still experiencing the aftereffects of the accident. But, there is no bad blood between him and Jared Black.
We hope that he returns to his work soon. As his Jumanji film’s releasing date approaches, we would like to see the cast press touring together.
