Cape Town – Kevin Hart was involved in a major car accident on Sunday morning.

The Ride Along actor was driving on Malibu's Mulholland Highway with friend, Jared Black in the driver's seat, and a third passenger, celebrity personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman. Jared lost control, and the car veered off the road and into a ditch, TMZ reports. And from the images posted by the site, it looks as though the vehicle could be a write-off, after having crashed through a wooden fence with the roof crushed on impact.

Jared and Rebecca were initially trapped in the car but eventually made it out. The California Highway Patrol told E! News Rebecca was not injured by the collision, but both Kevin and Jared "sustained major back injuries" and were treated in hospital. The police confirmed Jared was not "under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision".

Kevin was in the classic car he bought for his 40th birthday – a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda – when the accident happened.
