Kevin Hart's Wife Offers Update On His Condition Following Car Accident
The 40-year-old actor and comedian suffered 'major back injuries' in the incident, which took place in West Valley at around 12.45am.
He had been riding as a passenger in one of his cars - a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda - when it crashed from Cold Canyon Road onto Mulholland Highway.
The comedian's wife has spoken out about his condition on her way to visit him at hospital.
In a video obtained by TMZ, Eniko said: "He's great, he's going to be just fine."
She added: "He's good. Everybody's good, thank god," but went on to say that he isn't laughing and joking just yet.
