Comedian Kevin Hart has released a video showing his debilitating recovery
Comedian Kevin Hart has released a video showing his debilitating recovery after a horror car accident in which he sustained a serious back injury.
The video released on Tuesday shows Hart's physical therapy following the crash in Calabasas, California on September 1, when a friend drove his staged 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.
& # 39; You actually realize that you have no control. No matter how much you think you are in control, you are not in control & # 39 ;, Hart says in the video.
& # 39; If God speaks, you must listen, & # 39; he continues, while clips show him that he has trouble walking again after being in bed for weeks.
& # 39; Some of the craziest things that happen to you are the things that you need the most. And in this case, I really feel that God actually told me to sit down, & Hart continues.

& # 39; You know you're going too fast and doing too much, sometimes you can't see the things you should see & he says.
& # 39; But after my accident I see things differently, I see life from a whole new perspective. My appreciation for life comes from the roof & # 39 ;, Hart reflects.
The funny man pondered gloomily in the video and thanked his family, friends, fans and God as he continued his recovery.
At the end of the video a doctor tells him that it will take a year before he is fully recovered, to which he replies that he is in no hurry
Earlier this month, Hart issued his first statement since the crash and said he & # 39; is nothing but love & # 39; had for driver Jared Black and him and his fiance Rebecca Broxterman wished a speedy recovery.

Hart had been traveling with Black and Broxterman when their car ran off the road and crashed into a ditch at the beginning of September, causing serious back injuries and requiring surgery.
The accident involved Hart's car, but California Highway Patrol said it was Black, the fiancé of Hart & # 39; s wife & # 39; s personal trainer Broxterman, who was found in the driver's seat when they arrived at the scene.
Despite this, it seems that Hart has no hard feelings towards his friends.
& # 39; I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery, & # 39; he said in a statement released Thursday by his lawyer.
Kevin & # 39; s lawyer Andrew Brettler said that Kevin will only be fully back to work early next year, according to EW.
& # 39; Although he does some work here and there for the film, he does not expect him to be fully back until the new year, & # 39; said the lawyer.
The comedian, 40, had to fuse his backbone after breaking it in three places after the collapse in Malibu, California, earlier this month.
New details emerged after the accident, with sources for law enforcement TMZ last month that & # 39; none of the three people in the car were wearing seat belts & # 39 ;.

The Hart & # 39; s old-timer law enforcement allegedly stripped and found that this & # 39; had no mechanical problems & # 39; and that the crash was caused by & # 39; driver error & # 39 ;.
Hart left the scene of the collapse last month while his two friends – the personal trainer of his wife Broxterman and her fiancé Black who was driving – were trapped in the vehicle, according to the crash report.
The police have found extensive bodywork, including the addition of sports tires and a 6.4i Hemi V-8 engine. The car was reportedly without an anti-lock braking system.
The report states: & # 39; There were fold and crease marks on the seat belt surfaces that correspond to being folded and tucked away in the seats and there were no indications that the occupants were being loaded.
If they were worn, the police adds: & # 39; They were worn incorrectly due to excessive play in the belts. & # 39;
Broxterman, 40, would have been found across the windshield between the right-hand passenger seat and the roof. According to the report, the car was & # 39; not equipped to carry passengers in the back seat & # 39 ;.

New details emerged after the accident, with law enforcement sources telling TMZ Thursday that & # 39; none of the 3 people in the car were wearing seat belts & # 39;
Hart, who had plastic storage boxes to replace the back seat, told TMZ: & I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery. & # 39;
However, the site also said their sources have stated that & # 39; multiple lawsuits stem from the crash & # 39 ;.
Meanwhile, the comedian is reportedly back in action to promote his upcoming action sequel Jumanji: The Next Level, according to TMZ.
The stand-up talent appeared for a few hours of video recordings on set on Monday, in addition to a two-hour shoot on Tuesday and another for Slate for Thursday.
Although Hart is still not completely healthy after the accident, the comedian is still determined to meet his obligations.
Although he comes home from rehabilitation on September 20, the funnyman is still in a lot of pain and is working with a physical therapist to help with his recovery.
Doctors have told Hart that with time and exercises to help his recovery, he will be back to where he was before the crash.
After the accident, the actor's wife Eniko Hart confirmed that Kevin was doing well and said that he & # 39; would make it up & # 39; in a video from DailyMail.com.
His back surgery was declared by sources as & # 39; a complete success & # 39; The blast.
The vintage car from Hart tore off the road during the first weekend of September and sank into a ditch, leaving the comedian with serious back injury.
The comedian was left in the hospital after the horror crash in the early hours of Sunday morning in the hills of Malibu.
Hart is believed to have been a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda with his wife's personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman, 31, and her fiancee Jared Black, 28.
Black, who was reportedly driving, lost control of the car as it turned off the road and went down a hill around 1 hour along the Mulholland Highway.
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.
Witnesses revealed that a member of Kevin's security team appeared in an SUV and picked him up & # 39 ;.
A worried friend of Hart told 911 dispatchers that the comedian could not move and was incoherent after his horror crash, reports TMZ.
She also claimed that the incident had occurred just 20 minutes before she called, unlike the police.
This turn in the bizarre saga came hours after a witness, who also turned 911 in the immediate aftermath of the crash, said that he saw Hart being helped from his entire 1970 Plymouth Barracuda by the driver's side window before he got into a black was carried away Escalade.
Allegedly California Highway Patrol said it was Jared Black, the fiancé of Hart & # 39; s personal trainer, who was found in the driver's seat upon arrival.
Later, from Hart & # 39; s house at 2.13 am, the unknown female caller said the comedian was in an extremely bad way, & # 39; not at all coherent & # 39; and that & # 39; he cannot move & # 39; while he also pointed to a protrusion such as injury to his back.
The caller also said: & # 39; he cannot move & # 39; and had injured something on his back. She said the accident occurred 20 minutes ago outside their gated community – despite the crash that occurred at 1:00 am, according to police and testimonials.

Photos from the collision scene were horrific and completely destroyed the old-timer.
The day before the crash, Kevin took the bright blue vehicle for a ride and spun out his tires for a quick video shared on Instagram.
He bought the car earlier this year as the ultimate birthday present to celebrate his 40th birthday.
The California Highway Patrol is now reportedly planning to dismantle Hart & # 39; s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda to see if new safety laws are needed for restored classic cars.
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.
CHP will investigate whether the car has been incorrectly restored and whether a mechanical defect contributed to the crash.
