Kevin Hart breaks silence as cause of car crash determined

Kevin Hart has no ill will following his scary auto accident last month.

The 40-year-old actor released a statement through his attorney on Thursday (October 10) where he mentioned Jared Black and Rebecca Broxterman, the two individuals who were in the auto with him during the accident.

"I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery", he said in a statement provided to CNN by Brettler.

As ET previously reported, Rebecca Broxterman and Hart were passengers in the comedian's auto, a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, that crashed at 12:45 a.m. on September 1 near Calabasas, California. None of the three were wearing seat belts and both men suffered minor back injuries.

His attorney, Andrew Brettler, told CNN Friday that his client is "committed to the physical therapy regimen and is getting stronger every day".


A man driving Kevin Hart's vintage muscle auto recklessly accelerated, causing the crash in Southern California that left him and the driver seriously injured. Investigators say it appears no one in the vehicle was wearing a seatbelt.

Ten days after the crash, ET learned that Hart had been released from the hospital. The actor is already back at work to promote one of his upcoming films and, late last night, he issued his first public statement about the crash. It said he violated the law, but did not say whether charges were likely. The report also confirms that the producer was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash, though he appeared to have "quickly accelerated", causing the right rear tire to lose traction, which resulted in a loss of control of the vehicle, according to the CHP report obtained by NBC.

Hart was in the passenger's seat, while Broxterman was in the back. It remains to be seen how involved Hart will be in the promotional tour.

Hart has been off the scene since the accident.

The "Jumanji" sequel hits theaters in December.
