Extensive physiotherapy for Kevin Hart

Kevin Hart

RIDE Along star, Kevin Hart will need “extensive physiotherapy” after his recent car crash. The 40-year-old actor underwent surgery to his back at the weekend to rectify the injuries he sustained when his car veered off the Mulholland Highway in Malibu, and although the procedure has been deemed a success, he will need physical therapy in the coming weeks, TMZ reports.

Kevin is expected to be released from the hospital by the end of this week.

At the time of the accident, he was in the car with two other people, the driver Jared Black and Black’s fiancée, Rebecca Broxterman, when his Plymouth Barracuda veered off the highway in Malibu Hills, California, and ended up in a gully about 10 feet off the road.

Both Kevin and Jared were taken to hospital after sustaining “major back injuries”, but Rebecca, who is the personal trainer for Kevin’s wife, Eniko, did not need medical treatment.

Meanwhile, Eniko has assured fans that Kevin is “doing great, and he’s going to be just fine” after the accident.

Eniko, who has 22-month-old son, Kenzo, with Kevin, added that the Night School star is awake and talking, but will need to stay in hospital for a little while, in order to recuperate from the surgery and recover from the stress of the crash.
