Celebrity pals rally round Kevin Hart following car crash

Kevin Hart

Dwayne Johnson, Terry Crews and Bryan Cranston are among the celebrities who have sent messages of support to Kevin Hart, after the comic was involved in a nasty crash on Sunday morning in Calabasas, California.

The comedian was a passenger in his classic 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when it veered off the road and ended up in a ditch, trapping himself and two other people inside.

A California Highway Patrol collision report states the 40-year-old suffered "major back injuries" as a result of the incident, and a number of his pals have taken to social media to wish him well.

"Stop messing with my emotions brother," wrote frequent collaborator Johnson on Instagram, alongside a snap of the pair on set. "We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong."

The pair worked together on Central Intelligence, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and the recent The Fast and the Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, and will appear later this year in Jumanji: The Next Level.

Hart's Soul Plane co-star Crews also reached out to the actor, sharing a report of the incident from The Hollywood reporter and tweeting: "Get well soon, brother."

And Breaking Bad actor Cranston - with whom Hart starred in The Upside - urged fans to send the star "positive energy and healing thoughts", adding: "He's a good human. Get well soon, brother. B."

The crash was first reported by TMZ, who shared video from the scene, showing the wrecked car in the ditch, 10 feet (three metres) from the road, on Mulholland Highway.

Hart and the driver, 28-year-old Jared Black, both suffered back injuries, while fellow passenger, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.
