Kevin Hart was hospitalized Sunday after his vehicle crashed into the hills just south of Calabasas. According to ABC7, the crash occurred around 12:45 a.m. near Mulholland Highway and Cold Canyon Road after Hart’s classic 1970 Plymouth Barracuda swerved off the road and rolled down the embankment. Hart was one of two passengers in the car when the driver lost control. Hart suffered serious back injuries and is being treated at the Northridge hospital although the injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. The vehicle driver was also hospitalized, and the third passenger was injured but did not go to a hospital.

Five days ago, comedian Kevin Hart was reportedly badly injured in a car accident near his Calabasas, California, home. Now new details have emerged about the nature of his injuries and his recovery.
TMZ previously reported that Kevin underwent major back surgery on Sept. 1. Now the outlet has revealed that during the operation, surgeons repaired three spinal fractures.

TMZ further reports that though doctors believe Kevin will recover, it will take a lot of work to get there. On Sept. 4, the site reported that the movie star -- who's expected to be released from the hospital later in the week -- will soon begin grueling physical therapy.
It's unclear how his injuries will affect his work schedule. Close friend Dwayne Johnson has already stepped up to sub for Kevin as the first guest on Kelly Clarkson's new talk show, which debuts on Sept. 9. Kevin's next film, "Jumanji: The Next Level," comes out in December. Plus he's slated to star in and produce several other projects.

Kevin and two friends -- one was reportedly airlifted to a Los Angeles hospital; the other walked away with minor injuries -- were riding in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when it went off the road and crashed through a fence on Mulholland Highway near Malibu and Calabasas in the early-morning hours of Sept. 1. A motorist who pulled over and called 911 reported that the car was totaled and the top of the vehicle was crushed, at one point pinning at least one occupant inside.
According to TMZ, Kevin's security removed him from the scene of the accident before paramedics arrived. A second 911 call was made form Kevin's nearby home, recordings reveal, indicating that his bodyguard took him there before seeking medical treatment.
Authorities are still investigating the cause of the accident. A witness reported hearing the sound of tires screeching before a loud boom.

On Hamer Bay, boat tragedy involving Kevin O'Leary illuminates a clash of different worlds
Seguin Township, Ontario — On a rainy Thursday in late September, Neil Hamer, the last of the Hamers on Hamer Bay, stood in the gravel parking lot outside the family store and spoke into the window of a car parked in his open and otherwise empty lot. Hamer, who is 67, wore an old green golf shirt open at the neck. He had a prickly white moustache cut short over weathered skin. He couldn’t say much, he said, not about that night. But he wanted to say this: “It was wealthy people who squealed on me.” Hamer’s family goes back more than a century on the bay, a wooded cove at the north end of Lake Joseph in the Muskoka area north of Toronto.
