Just In: Wife of Kevin Hart Breaks Silence After Traumatic Car Crash and Surgery!
Eniko Hart, the wife of Kevin Hart, has broken her silence about the condition of the comedian following his surgery. Hart suffered “major back injuries” after his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda left the road and rolled over down tan embankment in Malibu this last weekend on Sunday.
“On 9-1-2019 at approximately 0045 hours, A 1970 Plymouth Barracuda driven by Jared Black turned from southbound Cold Canyon Road to eastbound Mulholland Highway,” a police report of the crash stated.
“Black immediately lost control of the vehicle and the Plymouth left the road and rolled over down the northern embankment. Two of the three occupants were trapped in the vehicle. The remaining occupant and owner of the vehicle, Kevin Hart, left the scene to his nearby residence to get medical attention.”
Jared Black was pinned in the crushed vehicle and also seriously injured. He was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center and we’re told he’s surrounded by family members as he also recovers.
Cops say Jared’s fiance, celebrity trainer Rebecca Broxterman, was also pinned in the backseat, but firefighters pulled her from the wreckage without major injuries.
Rumors of Hart being paralyzed, as well as having permanently damaging his vocal cords, swarmed the internet, only to be discovered untrue.
A source connected to Kevin said that the doctors completed successful back surgery on Kevin Sunday evening. Another source told TMZ that the comedian is expected to remain in the hospital for at least a couple of days while he recovers.
Following Hart’s surgery, Eniko spoke out about how he was doing, saying, “He’s great. He’s going to be just fine.”

Per Us Weekly, Eniko also added that “he’s good. Everybody’s good, thank God…He’s fine. He’s awake.”
Investigators are investigating excessive speed as the possible cause of the California car crash, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.
“Speed is definitely being investigated, but it hasn’t been determined to be a contributing factor so far,” CHP spokesman Weston Haver told the Daily News, referring to the car-crushing collision that unfolded at 12:45 a.m. Sunday.
“It’s something that would be a focus considering the incident happened at that time of night when the vehicle apparently was alone on the roadway and the driver was not impaired,” he said.

Haver spoke to The News after TMZ.com reported someone within earshot of the crash heard the muscle car “peeling out” before it veered off the road and careened into a ditch.
The witness reportedly heard the tires screeching and the sound of the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda smashing through fencing on Mulholland Highway near Cold Canyon Road.
