Kevin Hart, driver suffer major injuries when car rolls down embankment

CALABASAS — Comedian Kevin Hart and his driver suffered major injuries early Sunday when his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda rolled down an embankment on Mulholland Highway in Calabasas.

Hart, 40, was taken to Northridge Hospital Medical Center, and the driver, 28-year-old Jared Black of Woodland Hills, was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, also with major injuries, the California Highway Patrol reported.

A third occupant in the Barracuda, a 31-year-old woman from Woodland Hills, suffered only minor complaints of pain and sought her own aid, officials said.

The crash occurred about 12:45 a.m. on Mulholland Highway, east of Cold Canyon Road. The Plymouth turned from southbound Cold Canyon Road to eastbound Mulholland Highway, where Black lost control of the car. The vehicle left the road and rolled over down the northern embankment.

“Two of the three occupants were trapped inside,” the CHP said. “The remaining occupant and the owner of the vehicle, Kevin Hart, left the scene to his nearby residence to get medical attention.”

The CHP said Black was not under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.

Officials did not disclose the nature of Hart’s injuries, but the entertainment website TMZ reported that he injured his back.
