Kevin Hart has suffered a “major back injury” and was taken to a hospital after his vintage muscle car left the road and rolled into a ditch in the hills of Malibu in California.

The actor and comedian was a passenger in the vehicle along with a woman named Rebecca Broxterman, who is reportedly his wife’s personal trainer, while a man named Jared Black was driving, a California Highway Patrol collision report obtained by KNX1070 NewsRadio revealed.

The report says Black lost control of Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, which The Drive reports was customised with a Hellcat supercharged V-8 engine.
