The Rock Gives Update on Kevin Hart’s Health Saying ‘He Spoke to the Pediatrician’

Share on Facebook

Early this month, comedian and actor, Kevin Hart, was involved in a major road traffic accident and had sustained “serious injuries” as a result.

Hart was accompanied in the vehicle by 2 other people and managed to escape the written-off car, which had been rolled over onto its back, to find help. Though it is a miracle that no one died in the horrific accident, it has been reported that Hart and his friend, Jared Black, have both suffered “major back injuries.”

Hart was scheduled to make an appearance on the premiere episode of Kelly Clarkson’s new talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, this week, but, due to his injuries, he understandably won’t be attending. But, pal, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, has cut his honeymoon short to step in for Hart while he recovers from the ordeal.

And he had an update on his friend’s condition. Keep scrolling to see what he said…

Though his career in stand-up comedy got off to a rocky start, Kevin has gradually become one of Hollywood’s most recognizable stars.

And has become globally known and loved for his unique and comedic acting style.

In the early hours of September 1st, reports of a major car accident in Malibu started flooding in.

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.

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

While Black’s fiance, Rebecca Broxterman, and a personal trainer, was sat in the back.

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

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.

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

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.”

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.

And the fire department had to saw off the roof to get him out. He was then reportedly airlifted to UCLA Westwood hospital.

Broxterman was freed from the car and “suffered only 1 complaint of pain.”

As they have suffered “major back injuries” as a result of the accident, police have reported. The details about these injuries remain unclear, but many are worried as to whether the men will ever fully recover from such an injury.

California Highway Police confirmed that Black was not under the influence, and had not been drinking prior to the accident.

Including actor and good friend of Hart’s, Terry Crews, who told his “brother” to get well soon with a heart and prayer emoji.

People have noted that Hart’s accident should serve as a reminder that we should “treat people better.”

People from around the world have been hailing the star “an icon, a legend, a friend.”

Hart was scheduled to make an appearance on the premiere episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show this week.

Following the crash, Hart underwent surgery and is said to be “doing fine.” But, understandably, he is unable to attend due to his ordeal.

The pair starred together in the hit movie, Jumanji.

The actor, who recently tied the knot with wife, Lauren Hashian, was on his honeymoon when Hart’s tragic crash occurred, but, after hearing about his injuries, cut it short to support his friend.

Coming to the rescue, the star flew to Los Angeles from his honeymoon in Kauai to attend the show in place of Hart.

It seems as if the surgery went well, as Johnson was all smiles throughout the show. He even went as far as poking a little bit of fun at Kevin by referring to him as “his son.” He said: “Everything is good, I spoke with Kevin, I actually refer to him as my son.”

“I connected with him today and you know what? These things happen in life and thankfully he was strapped in nicely to his car seat. That’s real love…” Everyone laughed at The Rock’s jokes about his best friend.

Initially, hearing that the injuries were “major” sparked rumors about Hart’s spine as well as his recovery time but, now that The Rock has said that he’s recovering well, we can now be at ease. We hope he makes a full recovery very soon.
