911 Caller Said Kevin Hart Had Bone Protruding from His Spine After Car Crash [LISTEN]

*A witness to Kevin Hart’s car crash told police the comedian was in far worse shape than previously reported. 

Hart suffered a serious back injury in a car accident early Sunday morning, according to a TMZ report. The comedian/actor was not driving the Plymouth Barracuda, a classic car he’d purchased to celebrate his 40th birthday back in July.

The accident happened just before 1am, on the winding and accident-prone Mulholland Highway. Crash scene video shows the classic muscle car deep in a gully about 10 feet off the road.

The car smashed through wooden fencing along the roadside, and you can see the roof was completely crushed by the impact.

According to initially reports, Hart was at first picked up in an SUV by his security and taken to his home nearby, but was then transported to an area hospital. First responders used the jaws of life to pull Hart’s two companions out of the vehicle.

An unidentified female called 911 from inside Hart’s home to report the comedian was “not coherent and can’t move,” and that something was protruding from his spine.

The 911 call conflicts with earlier reports that Hart was talking and walking around after the crash.

The “Jumanji” star underwent an operation to stabilize his back on Sunday. His surgery was successful, but Hart will reportedly require extensive rehab following his car accident.

Sources close to Kevin tell us he’ll have a heavy physical therapy workload in the coming weeks.

Kevin’s Sunday night back surgery was a success — there’s still work to be done to ensure he comes back 100 percent.

Crash investigators told us alcohol was not a factor, but we are told cops are looking into excessive speed as a possible cause of the wreck. A witness said they heard tires screeching — like the vehicle was peeling out — before hearing a loud boom.

The driver of the vehicle, Jared Black, was airlifted to UCLA Medical Center, but his condition is unknown. Jared’s fiancee, Rebecca Broxterman — who is Eniko Hart’s trainer — was in the backseat, but made it out with minor pain.

 Hart us expected to be released from the hospital by the end of the week.
