Kevin Hart has been released from the hospital following a serious car crash he was involved in on Sept. 1.
ET has learned that the 40-year-old comedian was released from the hospital on Wednesday and is now in a rehabilitation facility getting physical therapy. Hart could stay for a week or more, depending on his progress.
A source previously told ET that Hart fractured his spine in three places as a result of the car accident earlier this month. A second source also told ET that he was “heavily sedated” after undergoing surgery.
“Kevin’s spinal injuries are very serious, he sustained several fractures and had no choice but to have surgery as soon as possible,” the source said. “Since the surgery, he has been heavily sedated. The physicians are doing everything they can to keep him out of pain.”
On Monday, a source told ET that Hart was walking, but not a lot, and that he’s doing well as he continues to heal.
Hart was in the passenger seat when he was involved in a car crash in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda at 12:45 a.m., near Calabasas, California, on Sept. 1. A representative for the California Highway Patrol told ET on Tuesday that they are doing a thorough mechanical inspection of Hart’s Plymouth Barracuda and writing up the report will take about two weeks. The representative also confirms that there is currently no criminal investigation and that there is a mechanical inspection after every collision.
ET spoke with Hart’s good friend, Tiffany Haddish, at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS event at the Plaza Hotel in New York City on Friday, where she gave us an update on his condition.
