Hart’s vintage car veered off the road over the weekend and plummeted into a ditch, leaving the comedian with major back injuries and possibly in need of surgery.

The comedian was left hospitalised and may need major back surgery following the horror crash in the early hours of Sunday morning in the hills of Malibu.

Hart was the passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda with his wife’s personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman, 31, and her fiancé Jared Black, 28.  

The comedian reportedly sustained a 'major back injury' when his vintage Plymouth Barracude veered off the road and down a hill off of Mulholland Highway

Black and Broxterman, an Instagram fitness model, were trapped inside.  

‘Hart and Black sustained major back injuries as a result of this collision and were transported and treated at nearby hospitals,’ Highway Patrol said in a report.

Broxterman sustained no injuries and Black was not under the influence.
