- CHP takes the classic car out of your hands to investigate the crash
- Hart was in a solo accident on September 1, which seriously injured him
- The comedian now walks again after surgery on the spine
- Researchers can recommend that shoulder straps are mandatory for restored cars
Allegedly the California Highway Patrol plans to completely dismantle 1970 Plymouth Barracuda from comedian Kevin Hart to see if new safety laws are needed for restored classic cars.
Hart, who was sitting in the passenger seat, and driver Jared Black were seriously injured in the single-driver accident on September 1 near Calabasas, California.
Now accident investigators with CHP will strip the car to the latches to see if it was properly repaired, sources told TMZ.
The research may even lead to new safety laws in California, such as the requirement that classic cars should be fitted with three-point seat belts instead of the two-point belts that used to be standard.
The process can take up to a month, with a week to disassemble the car and another two to three weeks to evaluate the evidence and write the report.
The roof of the car was completely crushed by the horror crash, leaving Hart and a friend behind the wheel with serious back injuries requiring long-term recovery

CHP will investigate whether the car has been incorrectly restored and whether a mechanical defect contributed to the crash, with the driver losing control and rolling down an embankment on the Mulholland Highway.
Hart and Black both suffered serious back injury during the crash, which experts say may have been minimized by a safety belt with shoulder strap.
After surgery to melt his spine in three places, it is now said that Hart is walking slowly and will undergo severe physiotherapy in the coming weeks.
Black & # 39; s fiancé, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, who is the personal trainer of Hart's wife, rode in the back seat of the car.
Black and Broxterman, an Instagram fitness model, were stuck when authorities arrived.
& # 39; Hart and Black suffered severe back injury as a result of this collision and were transported and treated in nearby hospitals, & # 39; said Highway Patrol in a report.
Broxterman sustained no injuries and Black was not under the influence.
After an operation to melt his spine in three places, Hart (above in April) is now said to be walking slowly and to undergo major physiotherapy in the coming weeks.
It only came a few hours after Hart posted the wheel of the classic car on social media.

His car tore along a dyke about & # 39; 10 feet from the road & # 39; and hit a wooden fence and crashed the roof in a collision.
Witnesses revealed that a member of Kevin's security team appeared in an SUV and picked him up & # 39 ;.
Photos of the collision site were equally horrific and showed that the car was broken.
The top of the classic ride was completely gone with a broken windshield on top of a missing hood.
The majority of the bodywork was still intact despite large dents on the trunk and side doors.
The wife of the actor Eniko Hart confirmed that Kevin was doing well and said that he & # 39; would be fine & # 39; in the video from DailyMail.com.
