Comedian Kevin Hart looks like he’s lucky to be alive after he was involved in a car accident early Sunday morning on Mulholland Highway in southern California.
A spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol told People magazine that the 40-year-old actor was the passenger in his vintage Barracuda that was being driven by pal Jared Black when the driver lost control and drove through wooden fencing in Malibu around 1 a.m. Sunday.
Pictures that have since surfaced on social media reportedly show the car after it crashed about 10 feet off the road into a ditch, leaving the “Night School” star and Black with “major back injuries,” per TMZ.

More pictures of the crash can be seen here reportedly showing the roof of the car completely crushed by the impact. A third person in the car, Rebecca Broxterman, was uninjured.
Hart reportedly left the scene and went home. Sometime later he went to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
The comedian has only had the new car for a little more than a month after posting a picture of his new wheels in July celebrating the 40th birthday gift he had gotten for himself.
Judging by the photos, everyone is clearly lucky to be alive.
