It's been nearly five months since Kevin Hart's near-fatal car accident and now, the gate he crashed through has been fixed. Back in September, the 40-year-old comedian was in his 1970's Plymouth Barracuda with two others when the driver lost control and drove off Mulholland Drive in Calabasas, CA, landing in a ditch. The accident was so serious that Kevin Hart and the driver, Jared Black, were transported to the hospital with "major back injuries." The "Don't F*** This Up" star was forced to get emergency back surgery "to stabilize his back."

Kevin Hart's Career Is Thriving:


Kevin Hart has thrived since his accident and successful back surgery, and Netflix cameras were rolling while the comedian rebuilt his life after suffering the devastating injuries. The "Jumanji: The Next Level" actor announced Netflix documentary, "Kevin Hart Don't F--- This Up," in an emotional video. "It's a look into my life over the past year and a half, which has been a hell of a rollercoaster with peaks, hills, ups, down. It's real, it's raw, it's as transparent as you can be. It's something I think people need to see."

Breaking His Silence:


Kevin Hart went silent on social media during the recovery process but returned at the end of October to speak on the accident. Sharing news coverage of the incident, he stated it completely changed his outlook on life. "When God talks, you got to listen. In this case, I honestly feel like God told me to sit down. You know, you’re moving too fast, you’re doing too much sometimes you can’t see the things you’re meant to see," he said. Hart made his first public appearance following the crash at the People's Choice Awards weeks later and gave an emotional speech. "First and foremost, I thank God because I definitely don’t have to be here. Being that I am, it makes me appreciate life even more. It makes me appreciate the things that really matter. Family. I want to thank my wife and my kids, who really stepped up to the plate for me," he said in front of his peers. "You have no idea the effect that you have on us as entertainers. Your energy, your support. It means the world and I truly want to thank you guys for being there for me in my difficult time."
