Actor Kevin Hart has been spotted in public for the first time following his serious car accident.

Hart was out Monday night along with Jay-Z and others at Avra restaurant in Beverly Hills, according to a report published by Entertainment Tonight. The pair reportedly met up with pals Leonardo DiCaprio and Rich Paul for a poker game post-dinner.

The comedian seemed to be in a good mood and was dressed in a black shirt, black hoodie, and jeans, ET reported.

Hart was in the passenger seat of his vehicle during the crash that occurred near Calabasas, California on Sept. 1. He reportedly fractured his back in three places and had to undergo major surgery. (RELATED: Kevin Hart Returns To Work After Suffering Severe Injuries From Car Crash)

“I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery,” Hart said in a statement.

The California Highway Patrol confirmed the crash occurred after the driver of Hart’s vehicle accelerated after a turn. Nobody in the vehicle was wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
