Kevin Hart Suffers Major Injuries in Car Accident, Roof Crushed

MALIBU (TMZ) — Kevin Hart is on the mend this morning after going under the knife Sunday … less than 24 hours after he injured his back in a horrific car accident.

One of Kevin Hart‘s classic cars ended up in a ditch in the Malibu Hills after veering off the road … TMZ has learned, and looking at the damage … it’s a miracle he and 2 other people in the vehicle survived.

A source connected to Kevin tell TMZ that doctors completed successful back surgery on Kevin Sunday evening. Another source told us the comedian is expected to remain in the hospital for at least a couple of days while he recovers.

TMZ broke the story … Kevin was miraculously able to walk away from the accident early Sunday morning on L.A.’s treacherous Mulholland Highway — with assistance from a bodyguard — but was rushed to a hospital with what cops called a “major back injury.”

Police tell us the driver of the car was found pinned in his seat under the crushed roof and so was the female passenger. We’re told the fire department had to saw off the roof to free them.

Jared Black, the man who was driving Kevin’s vintage Plymouth Barracuda at the time of the accident, was pinned in the crushed vehicle and also seriously injured. He was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center and we’re told he’s surrounded by family members as he also recovers.

Cops say Jared’s fiance, celebrity trainer Rebecca Broxterman, was pinned in the backseat … but firefighters pulled her from the wreckage without major injuries.

SCENE OF THE CRASH

The accident happened just before 1 AM Sunday on the winding and treacherous Mulholland Highway. Crash scene video, obtained by TMZ, shows Kevin’s Plymouth Barracuda deep in a gully about 10 feet off the road.

The car smashed through wooden fencing along the roadside, and you can see the roof was completely crushed by the impact.

Cops have confirmed the vehicle belongs to Kevin, but they tell us he was not driving at the time of the accident. There were 2 other people were in the car, including the driver — and cops say Kevin and the driver both suffered “major back injuries.”

Police say the driver had not been drinking.

Kevin was first out of the vehicle and according to a witness, a member of his security team showed up in an SUV and picked him up. Kevin lives nearby and cops say he went home “to get medical attention.” He was eventually treated at a hospital.

TAKIN’ HER OUT FOR A SPIN

Earlier, on Saturday … Kevin posted a video of himself in his vintage ride, as someone yelled at him for laying down too much rubber on the street as he spun out his tires.

Kevin bought the car back in July as a 40th birthday gift to himself.
