The crash happened on Sunday morning in Calabasas, California. Hart was a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that he owns when the driver, Jared Black, allegedly lost control and crashed. Both Black and Hart were taken to hospitals for their injuries.
Another passenger, Rebecca Broxterman, was not hurt. She is Black’s fiancée.
The pair starred together on the silver screen this summer in “Hobbs & Shaw” and they will soon appear in “Jumanji: The Next Level.”
“Breaking Bad” actor Bryan Cranston also posted a message of support for Hart on his Instagram page:
And some sweet words were shared on Instagram by comedian Arsenio Hall, who is grateful Hart survived the ordeal:
We agree, Arsenio, we definitely need Hart in our lives!
Keeping his tone comedic, George Wallace shared some rhymes on Twitter as a way of sending love to Hart:

Comedian Marlon Wayans also shared some love for Hart on Instagram, with a photo of the two friends and the caption “Praying for you big guy.”
So much care and support have been shown for the actor, who is now recovering after reportedly having back surgery later on Sunday. Hart’s wife, Eniko Parrish, told TMZ her husband is going to be “just fine.”
The crash remains under investigation but police have said Black was not under the influence of alcohol when it happened.
We hope both Black and Hart recover soon!
