Kevin Hart able to walk following car accident - report

Kevin Hart

Kevin Hart is reportedly back on his feet after his classic 1970 Plymouth Barracuda veered off the road and ended up in a ditch on Sunday morning.

The comedian was hospitalised when the vehicle, in which he was a passenger, was wrecked 10 feet (three metres) from the road on Mulholland Highway in Calabasas, California.

TMZ first reported the incident, and a California Highway Patrol collision report states the 40-year-old suffered "major back injuries" as a result. The driver, 28-year-old Jared Black, also suffered back injuries and was hospitalised, while fellow passenger, 31-year-old personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.

But according to The Blast, insiders reached out to the publication to clarify the actor's condition, insisting it is "not a spinal cord injury" and the Get Hard star is "able to walk and move his extremities".

They added Hart is still in a local hospital undergoing tests to determine if his back will require surgery to repair. However, they wanted to explain his injuries weren't as "major" as was previously reported.

Following the accident, a number of Hart's celebrity pals took to social media to send him well-wishes. His Soul Plane co-star Terry Crews wrote, "Get well soon, brother," while Dwayne Johnson, with whom he'll star in Jumanji: The Next Level later this year, added: "Love you man. Stay strong."
