Kevin Hart was involved in a car crash early Sunday morning when his vintage Plymouth Barracuda rolled into an embankment off Mulholland Highway in Calabasas, California. The comedian and actor reportedly suffered “major back injuries” and was hospitalized, where he underwent back surgery.

According to TMZ, Jared Black was driving at the time of the accident. Black’s fiancée, Rebecca Broxterman, was also a passenger in the car. Black was “pinned in the crushed vehicle” and was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center, while Broxterman sustained minor injuries. California Highway Patrol reports the driver was not under the influence of alcohol.

TMZ caught up with Hart’s wife, Eniko Hart, as she headed to the hospital. She remarked that he’s “going to be just fine” and that his spirits are “good.”
