Everyone lawyered up following the crash, it seems like no lawsuits will be filed.
As Kevin Hart continues to recover from the car accident that nearly took his life, it looks as if there won’t be any legal action taken in connection to the incident. Though, there was lots of speculation surrounding what court proceedings would unfold in the months after Hart’s near-fatal accident in September 2019. The comedian actor two friends Jared Black and Black’s fiancée Rebecca Broxterman were in the vehicle with Kelvin Hart, and while the actor wasn’t driving at the time, he was the owner of the restored 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.
However, according to reports the vehicle wasn’t equipped with proper safety harnesses and no one was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, either. The two other passengers were reportedly treated and released for minor injuries, however, Hart underwent spinal surgery and continues his physical rehabilitation.
Per TMZ report, investigators faulted the driver for the crash because “he allegedly gunned the vehicle’s 720-HP engine and lost control.” Not long after the accident, all passengers called on their lawyers as they anticipated potential lawsuits, but nothing has materialized. There also hasn’t been any money exchanged between any of the parties involved, who are all friends.
In the first statement of Kevin Hart following the accident back in October 2019, he made it clear that he harbored no ill-will toward his friends. “I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery,” Hart stated. TMZ also shared that it’s unlikely that any lawsuits will be filed in this case, but all parties do have three years to do so.
