A Terrible Accident
On September 2, Kevin Hart was hospitalized after a car accident the night before that left him with serious fractures to his spine. According to the police report, Hart was in the passenger seat during the accident and his "1970 Plymouth Barracuda veered off Mulholland Highway, crashed into a wooden fence, rolled and landed in a ditch."
Hart's Camp Is Downplaying His Injuries
It was initially reported that Hart's injuries were extensive and that while he was released from the hospital, it would take him several months of painful and rigorous physical therapy to recover.
A source close to the actor told Us Weekly that while Hart is determined to get back on track, "It’s going to take him many months to recover. It’s going to be extremely long and grueling."
Worried About His Future Projects
The source also claimed that Hart is worried about the various projects that he has lined up will fall through in the wake of this news, so he is instructing those close to him to "downplay the seriousness of his injuries because he has so many project commitments."
Hopefully Hart makes a swift recovery and is able to return to work sooner rather than later.
