Kevin Hart has reportedly finally left the hospital and is now doing some serious physical therapy at a live-in rehab facility after suffering “major” injuries in a car wreck.

Sources close to the 40-year-old actor told TMZ in a piece published Wednesday, that the “Night School” star is out of the hospital following ten days there after the car he was riding in careened off the road and crashed in a ditch, crushing the roof of the car.

“I’m grateful to be alive,” the source added that Hart shared, while explaining that the goal is to get him home “as soon as possible” so he can start outpatient care.

Hart had to undergo surgery to “fuse the fractures, two in the thoracic part of his spine and one in the lumbar,” sources told the outlet in an earlier report following the crash.

As previously reported, the “Central Intelligence” star 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 in the early morning hours.

Pictures that later surfaced on social media reportedly showed the car after it crashed about 10 feet off the road into a ditch, leaving Hart and Black with “major back injuries,” per TMZ.

Kevin’s wife, Eniko Hart, shared with the outlet Thursday that her husband was doing “amazing” and that “he’ll be back on track in no time.”

Definitely great news!
