Kevin Hart posts emotional video detailing his road to recovery
In early September, news broke that actor and comedian Kevin Hart had been involved in a serious traffic incident that left him hospitalized with "major back injuries".
The incident occurred just before 1:00 am on the morning of Sunday, September 1, on the Mulholland Highway - a road described as "winding and treacherous" by the TMZ. Crash footage obtained by the entertainment news site showed Hart's Plymouth Barracuda - a classic car he bought for himself back in July as a 40th birthday gift to himself - destroyed in a gully approximately 10-foot off the main road.
You can see an early report of the incident below:
Hart was in the car with his friends Rebecca Broxterman and her fiancé Jared Black, the latter of whom was driving the car. Despite all three surviving the wreck, Hart was airlifted across town to UCLA Medical Center with serious injuries to his spine.
Earlier this month, a police report obtained by Page Six revealed how the incident was caused by Black "driving recklessly", but that alcohol was not involved. Hart also released a statement earlier this month through his layer, saying: "I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery."
And just hours ago, Hart has posted an emotional video to his Instagram account detailing his reaction to the crash, and the physical therapy he is currently undergoing.
Check out Hart's video below - it's a miracle he's doing so well:
At one point in the video, Hart says, "When God talks, you got to listen. In this case, I honestly feel like God told me to sit down. You know, you’re moving too fast, you’re doing too much sometimes you can’t see the things you’re meant to see."
Watching the video from start to finish, it is amazing to see how far Hart has come in under two months.
He says in the footage: "After my accident, I see things differently. I see things from a whole new perspective. My appreciation for life is through the roof. So don’t take today for granted because tomorrow’s not promised."
We wish all three passengers the best on their respective recoveries.
