His car but apparently he wasn't driving.
I have no idea how that rear quarter window survived.
That's ... interesting.Two of the three occupants were trapped in the vehicle. Hart left the scene to his nearby residence to get medical attention, the report states.
One would think he would stay with his friends until they were extracted.
I guess celebrities need to leave bad situations before the media shows up.
You think this was a "lifted during extensive burn out" type crash?
Anyone here familiar with that particular area?Los Angeles Times wrote:
Comedian Kevin Hart and his driver suffered major injuries Sunday when his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda rolled down an embankment on Mulholland Highway in Calabasas.
Hart, 40, was taken to Northridge Hospital Medical Center, and the driver, 28-year-old Jared Black of Woodland Hills, was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, also with major injuries, the California Highway Patrol reported.
A third occupant in the Barracuda, a 31-year-old woman from Woodland Hills, had only minor complaints of pain and sought her own aid, officials said.
The crash occurred about 12:45 a.m. on Mulholland Highway, east of Cold Canyon Road.
The Plymouth turned from southbound Cold Canyon Road to eastbound Mulholland Highway, where Black lost control of the car.
The vehicle left the road and rolled down the northern embankment.
“Two of the three occupants were trapped inside,” the CHP said. “The remaining occupant and the owner of the vehicle, Kevin Hart, left the scene to his nearby residence to get medical attention.”
The CHP said Black was not under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
Officials did not disclose the nature of Hart’s injuries. The entertainment website TMZ reported that he injured his back.
A reckless display of machismo on the drivers part?
That 'Cuda looks like a mean beast.
Ray donovan showed up put the other guy in drivers seat and told Kevin to go home although the article says Kevin was taken to a hospital and then says he went home straight from accident. What?

Whenever a car is rolling, speed IS a factor. Whether or not it is a significant factor, that is the question. If it was a short driver, I'm going with pedal misapplication. or Mustang syndrome.

This looks exactly like what we see at your usual Cars n Coffee exit mishap. And I imagine a Hellcat-engined pro-touring Challenger can quickly get a little hairy if you get it wrong.
I’ll actually be up that way today, but I doubt I’ll see anything interesting, that’s not a difficult part of the road.
Also - that thing looks cool as hell, but if a modern Challenger rolled over in that situation, I doubt the roof would collapse like that. The thing just turned turtle in a ditch, but a 70’s Challenger isn’t exactly stout in the window pillar department.

Well, headed out to Malibu today, and saw the damage. I thought I’d miss the spot if I wasn’t looking, but the skid marks and broken fencing were obvious. The angle of the sun cast shadows from the power lines, but it was still pretty easy to see how quickly things went wrong..
It wasn’t just a small culvert or ditch, the drop off was fairly steep, at least a ten or twelve foot drop down off Mulholland..
You can see a few faint stripes from wheelspin coming out of Cold Canyon, but who knows from where or what. There are also a fair amount of standing start wheelspin launches at that intersection too.
One more long shot looking west towards Cold Canyon, standing across from where it left the road..
Draw your own conclusions. The report looks legit to me, just coming out of Cold Canyon onto Mulholland with a wee bit too much Hellcatting, maybe got loose on the yellow stripes, and... whoops.

Classic cars don't hurt people, people in classic cars hurt people.
But anyway that was one long azzes burnout there. I imagine those rear tires were hot and slick as fek. Probably snapped oversteer and straight off by looking at the marks.
I hope Kevin and his friends come out of it OK, he'll get a lot of material for a show out of this.
