Kevin Hart is "going to be just fine."
The 40-year-old comedian's wife Eniko gave an update on her husband's condition Sunday (September 1), just hours after he went underwent back surgery following his horrific early morning car crash.
"He's great," she told TMZ photogs who caught up with her as she was walking into the hospital to visit Kevin. "He's going to be just fine."
Eniko later added, "He's good. Everybody's good. That's it."
As previously reported, Kevin, sustained "major back injuries" after his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, which was driven by his friend Jared Black, went off the road and rolled down an embankment in Calabasas, California. Two of the three occupants were reportedly trapped in the vehicle, which was completely smashed during the wreck. Miraculously, Kevin was able to walk away from the accident with the help of a bodyguard — he reportedly left the scene to his nearby home — but was later rushed to a hospital to receive medical.
According to TMZ, "doctors completed successful back surgery on Kevin Sunday evening," and he's expected to remain there "for at least a couple of days while he recovers." In regards to Jared's condition, he was reportedly "seriously injured" in the crash. TMZ reports that he was "pinned in the crushed vehicle" and had to be airlifted to UCLA Medical Center. He's currently recovering in the hospital while surrounded by his family.
Jared's fiancée, celebrity trainer Rebecca Broxterman, was also said to have been pinned in the backseat. However, firefighters were able to "pull her from the wreckage without major injuries."
