Comedian Kevin Hart looks like he’s lucky to be alive after he was involved in a car accident early Sunday morning on Mulholland Highway in southern California.
A spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol told People magazine that the 40-year-old actor was the passenger in his vintage Barracuda that was being driven by pal Jared Black when the driver lost control and drove through wooden fencing in Malibu around 1 a.m. Sunday.

More pictures of the crash can be seen here reportedly showing the roof of the car completely crushed by the impact. A third person in the car, Rebecca Broxterman, was uninjured.
Hart reportedly left the scene and went home. Sometime later he went to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
The comedian has only had the new car for a little more than a month after posting a picture of his new wheels in July celebrating the 40th birthday gift he had gotten for himself.
