In the early hours of Sunday morning, reports of a major car accident in Malibu started flooding in.

The crash happened in Hart's vintage 1970 Plymouth Barracuda...

Which was bought by Hart as a fortieth birthday present to himself back in July. The day before the accident, Kevin posted a video of himself in his vintage ride, as someone yelled at him for laying down too much rubber on the street as he spun out his tires.

Though on Sunday, Hart wasn't actually driving his car.

According to reports, the vehicle was been driven by Hart's friend, Jared Black, twenty-eight, in the West Valley.

Hart was in the passenger seat of his vehicle.

While Black's fiance, Rebecca Broxterman, thirty-one and a personal trainer, was sat in the back.

Jared Black lost control of the vehicle.

Jared, who is an actor, producer, and director, turned from the southbound Cold Canyon Road to eastbound Mulholland Highway.

This is when the vehicle skidded off the road.

Hart's car tumbled off the Mulholland Highway and subsequently plummeted 10 feet deep into a gully off the windy road on the Los Angeles coast.

Pictures of the scene have been emerging...

And they highlight just how violent the accident really was, as the fence on the side of the road lays in tatters.

But the damage to Hart's car was devastating and quite simply shocking.

When the vehicle smashed into the wooden fence off the highway, the entire roof was crushed, leaving the vintage car in complete ruins. The official police report described the accident on September 1st: “at approximately 0045 hours, A 1970 Plymouth Barracuda driven by Jared Black turned from the southbound Cold Canyon Road to eastbound Mulholland Highway. Black immediately lost control of the vehicle and the Plymouth left the road and rolled over down the northern embankment."

The passengers were left trapped in the smashed-up vehicle.

And Hart was the first to emerge from the vehicle in the search for medical attention and help. He was then picked up by a member of his security team before being taken to the hospital.

However, Jared Black was found pinned to his seat.
