‘Jumanji’ Star Kevin Hart Suffers ‘Major Back Injuries’ In Car Accident

Kevin Hart Jumanji

Jumanji star Kevin Hart has sustained some major back injuries while in the passenger’s seat of a car after being involved in a serious accident.

According to TMZ, Kevin Hart’s car swerved into a ditch in Malibu Hills, completely totaling vehicle. Although Kevin Hart, the driver, and another passenger are all alive, he’s taken a pretty awful back injury in the process.

Images taken by TMZ – which we won’t show here – show how badly Kevin Hart’s vintage car was wrecked. The roof has caved in, the windshield has flattened, and the entire front of the car is missing the hood. The engine itself is pretty banged up, while the back of the car’s trunk is half-busted.

As indicated by both of the passengers and police that arrived on the scene, Kevin Hart is fine now, but he’s had some pretty bad back injuries as a result of the car crash. Kevin Hart and the driver were apparently the only people injured during the accident.

Kevin Hart recently completed filming his role in Sony’s Jumanji: The Next Level. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Based on the children’s book of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg, the Jumanji franchise has followed the misadventures of characters who find themselves plagued by a magical game. The 1995 film starred Robin Williams in the lead role and followed the book’s story of wild jungle animals invading the real world. Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart’s Jumanji sequel updated the concept to follow a group of teens who are transported to the world of Jumanji through a video game.

Here’s the official synopsis for Kevin Hart’s Jumanji: The Next Level:

In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to Jumanji to rescue one of their own, they discover that nothing is as they expect. The players will have to brave parts unknown and unexplored, from the arid deserts to the snowy mountains, in order to escape the world’s most dangerous game.

Directed by Jake Kasdan from a script written by Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, the Jumanji sequel stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Awkwafina, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover, and Nick Jonas.

Jumanji: The Next Level will be released in theaters on December 13, 2019. Stay tuned for more updates on Kevin Hart and the upcoming movie.
