Shortly before 1 a.m. on Sunday, Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda veered off the road of the winding Mulholland Highway in the Malibu Hills, crashing into a wooden fence before landing in a ditch. The roof was reportedly crushed upon impact.

Black and a third passenger, Rebecca Broxterman, were originally trapped inside the car following the accident. Both were able to escape with Broxterman suffering no injuries. Black and Hart, however, allegedly “sustained major back injuries.”
California Highway Patrol have informed E! News that Black was not “under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.”
The wrecked Plymouth Barracuda was the vehicle that Hart bought for himself for his 40th birthday earlier this year.
