Kevin Hart’s friend finally on the road to recovery after horrific car crash

Kevin Hart’s friend needed “major back surgery” following the horrific car crash two months ago.

The 40-year-old comedian wasn’t the only one who needed an emergency operation after the car they were travelling in veered off the highway and ended up in a gully about 10 feet off the road as his pal Jared Black – who was driving the vehicle – was also rushed through to theatre at the same time.

Jared’s fiancee Rebecca Broxterman – who was also in the car at the time but managed to escape without any major injuries – wrote on Instagram on Thursday (14.11.19): “We are both healing! Jared is well on the road to recovery after having major back surgery! We are doing physical therapy together a few times a week!

“Our relationship is stronger than ever and we have so much to be thankful for! Life can take you in many different directions and we are just so happy to be here for it all! We have felt so much love these past 2.5 months and that doesn’t go unnoticed! So thank you to each one of you! This is our journey… it will have ups and it will have downs but we will always have each other. @thejaredstanton I love you so much and am thankful that we are doing life together! ”

GRATEFUL and BLESSED. September 1, 2019 was the scariest day of my life. God was definitely watching over us that night and protecting us. Thank you, Lord, for wrapping your loving arms around us in our time of need. Written 9/17/19: First of all, I want you all to know that ultimately, all 3 of us in the car wreck are alive and recovering and that’s what matters the most! It is going to be a long road to recovery but we have the best support team. The scariest part for Jared and I was being separated after both being airlifted to UCLA. Just a lot of rest and physical therapy ahead for both of us! Jared is the strongest person I know and he will get through this. We still have each other and that’s what matters the most. This could’ve had a completely different outcome and we feel so blessed that it was not any worse. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for all of the prayers, phone calls, texts and messages. It means the world to us that we feel so much love and support from you all at this time! I will keep you all updated as we embark on this new journey! TODAY: Feeling so much better! We are both healing! Jared is well on the road to recovery after having major back surgery! We are doing physical therapy together a few times a week! Our relationship is stronger than ever and we have so much to be thankful for! Life can take you in many different directions and we are just so happy to be here for it all! We have felt so much love these past 2.5 months and that doesn’t go unnoticed! So thank you to each one of you! This is our journey… it will have ups and it will have downs but we will always have each other. @thejaredstanton I love you so much and am thankful that we are doing life together!

Kevin – who sustained three fractures in his spine during the smash – recently said the accident had given him a wake-up call as he was unable to walk, wipe his bottom and he felt helpless.

As earlier reported by The Sauce, he said: “I could not f***ing move. I could not wipe my a**… I literally couldn’t do any of that… It makes you realize you really are helpless. There was nothing I could do.”

The ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ actor – who has kids Heaven, 14, Hendrix, 12, with ex-wife Torrei and two-year-old Kenzo with current spouse Eniko – is now “a different version” of himself.

He explained: “For me, I’m a different version of myself. This ain’t got nothing to do with going to church… It’s not spiritual, spiritual is the wrong word. You’re more present. More aware… It’s all a joke until you get smacked with that real-life reality.”

Kevin made his first public appearance at the E! People’s Choice Award, where he was nominated and won for the ‘Best Comedy Act’ award on November 11th, 2019. In the emotional speech, Kevin was honest and open about the impact the accident had on his.

Accepting the award he said, “First and foremost, I thank God because I definitely don’t have to be here. Being that I am, it makes me appreciate life even more. It makes me appreciate the things that really matter. Family. I want to thank my wife and my kids, who really stepped up to the plate for me.”

Next thanking his fans, Hart continued: “You have no idea the effect that you have on us as entertainers. Your energy, your support. It means the world and I truly want to thank you guys for being there for me in my difficult time.”
