JUMANJI Star Kevin Hart Recovering From Emergency Back Surgery Following Horrific Car Crash
Jumanji: The Next Level star Kevin Hart was involved in a serious car accident over the weekend, resulting in him having emergency back surgery. The surgery was reportedly successful, and he's recovering.
TMZ first reported the accident, revealing video footage of the aftermath of the accident, which saw Hart's vintage Plymouth Barracuda veer off a Mulholland Highway canyon and into a deep gully about 10 feet off the road. The roof of the car was completely crushed by the impact.
It has since been reported that Hart, miraculously, was able to away form the crash and went to his nearby home "to get medical attention." He eventually checked himself into a L.A.-area hospital, where he underwent evaluation and eventually surgery for what what cops called "a major back injury."
Thankfully, it seems the surgery was successful. Kevin's wife, Eniko Hart, offered a brief update to TMZ while on her way into the hospital, telling the site Kevin's "going to be just fine." The comedian/actor is expected to remain in the hospital for the next few days while he recovers.
Fellow Jumanji co-star Dwayne Johnson offered a heartfelt message to his close friend on social media.
It remains to be seen what sort of condition Hart will be in following the back surgery.
Hart stars in Jumanji: The Next Level alongside Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan. The film opens in theaters on December 13, 2019.
