Kevin Hart Posts Video Of His Recovery After Serious Car Crash

Actor Kevin Hart has posted a video detailing his recovery from a serios car crash in September that left Hart with severe back injuries. Hart posted the nearly 2-minute video on his official Instagram account, saying in a voice-over as the video begins: “Basically, what you realize is that you’re not in control. No matter how much you think you’re in control, you’re not in control. At the end of the day, it can all be over, man.”

Hart, 40, was one of three people involved in a one-car crash on September 1 in Calabasas, California. Hart and the driver, Jared Black, sustained back injuries. Black’s reckless driving caused the crash in Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, the California Highway Patrol determined.

“My world forever changed” as a result of the crash, Hart notes in his video, which includes footage of him in the hospital, struggling with rehabilitation and at home.  The actor also expresses his gratitude for his fans and God and includes footage of his doctor discussing with him how his recovery will take a year, saying “I’m thankful for simply still being here, on the road to being a bigger and better version of me,” Hart says. “I’m looking forward to an amazing 2020.”
