Kevin Hart car crash: all the details
The comedian was in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when his driver, Jared Black, somehow lost control of the vehicle while on the Mulholland Highway. The car skidded off the road and rolled down the northern embankment. The wooden fence on the side of the road was smashed by the hit. The vehicle dropped about 10 feet down.
As a result of the accident, the vehicle was ruined. The rescue team needed to saw off the vehicle's roof to free the remaining passengers who could not leave the car and were literally pinned to their seats.
As reported by the California Highway Patrol, there were three persons inside the car (the third one was Rebecca Broxterman, a famous personal trainer who is known for working with celebrities, Eniko Parrish, Hart’s wife, among them). Two of them could not leave the crashed vehicle. Hart was the only one able to leave the metal trap, heading for his nearby residence in search of medical help.
As police officers report, the driver was not intoxicated.
