Kevin Hart sustains 'major back injuries' in California car crash

Kevin Hart was injured when his vintage muscle car crashed in the hills above Malibu.

A California Highway Patrol collision report says the 40-year-old Hart was a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that went off Mulholland Highway and rolled down an embankment around 12:45 a.m. Sunday.

The report says Hart and the driver, 28-year-old Jared Black, both suffered “major back injuries” and were taken to hospitals.

Another passenger, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.

The CHP report says the car immediately went out of control as it turned from a canyon road onto the highway.

The car was a gift Hart bought himself for his birthday in July, according to E! News.

The report says the driver was not under the influence of alcohol.
