Car Experts Claim Kevin Hart's Car Lacked Basic Safety Features

Entertainment | By Angelica Osborn | September 9, 2019

Kevin Hart has had a difficult year, ever since the controversy over the Oscars late 2018. Kevin Hart went from everyone's favorite comedian to public enemy number one after homophobic tweets resurfaced from ten years prior. That situation ended up losing him his Oscar-hosting gig, prompting lots of internet debates about if the firing was justified.

Despite that incident with the Oscars, Kevin Hart remains one of the biggest movie and comedy stars in the world right now. His movies are incredibly popular, and his stand-up comedy sells out entire stadiums. His most recent Netflix special came out just a couple of months ago to rave reviews.

When you are on top like Kevin Hart, it can feel like nothing can ever bring you down. Unfortunately, Kevin Hart is going through even more trouble after getting in a high speed car wreck last week. He has suffered serious back injuries, and though he is expected to recover, the injuries are serious.

Kevin Hart Crashed his Plymouth Barracuda

Kevin Hart was involved in a very serious car accident last week that has left him with horrible back injuries. Details have emerged regarding the circumstance that prove some reckless behavior was involved in the crash. According to car experts, Kevin Hart was riding in a death trap." The car Kevin Hart was driving in was a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda. A car like a 1970s Plymouth Barracuda does not have the same safety features that we see in cars today. If it did, Kevin Hart would not have suffered the level of injuries that he did.

The Plymouth Barracuda is a very serious car. Simply put, you don't drive slow when you're in a Plymouth Barracuda. It is a car that wants to go fast, and the people who drive it also want to go fast. It is a recipe for disaster.

An Unusually Unsafe Car

A car as fast as Kevin Hart's Plymouth Barracuda should be reinforced for safety with a five-point harness and a roll cage, however, according to custom car experts, it isn't common that casual drivers wouldn't install these features in their car. For example. Joe Rogan, famous comedian, actor, and podcaster, has the same car which was built by Rad Rides by Troy. Rad Rides by Troy were shocked to find out that Kevin Hart's car didn't have the same safety features.

TMZ reached out to the company that built Kevin Hart's Plymouth Barracuda but they have no responded back with their comments. It is hard to say if the company can be accused of negligence or if this solely falls on Kevin Hart for not requesting these safety features. Either way, reckless driving was also a factor.

A Wake Up Call for Kevin and Others

Kevin Hart was driving on the Mulholland Highway in the Malibu Hills when he crashed through a fence. He suffered 3 spinal fractures and had to have 3 sections of his spin fused during back surgery. He will have to undergo several months of rehab at the very least. For someone as busy and successful as Kevin Hart, that will be hard to do. Kevin Hart's accident is prompting others to reconsider their own vehicle's safety. Dr. Phil owns a 1957 Chevy that is only equipped with lap belts. He's thinking of installing both airbags and a harness now.

Lap belts are dangerous because they can sever your spine during a wreck. Kevin Hart's fans are wishing him a speedy recovery. We will see how this affects his career, especially when it comes to movies with heavy action.

Did You Know...


Chefs made their way into celebrity land a while ago. But how many celebrities that weren’t trained as professional cooks are actually whizzes in the kitchen? Here are several that come to mind.


Actress Julia Roberts is confident about her cooking skills. “I’m quite a good cook,” she told E! News. “I’m like a closet home ec teacher…I can really cook anything.” Roberts has said she often cooks fish for herself and her kids. And speaking of her three children, “They think that I’m a good cook,” Roberts told People. “They actually told me that I should open a restaurant.” She also relishes cooking for the holidays, particularly shredded Brussel sprouts. Roberts hasn’t published a cookbook, but we did find recipes attributed to her for peach crisp and banana hemp muffins. Or you can make the same summer salad the actress supposedly eats.


Chrissy Teigen started off as a supermodel. Then her love of cooking filtered into her professional life too. At this point, she’s created recipes for a limited Blue Apron release and also just launched her own home and cooking line at Target named “Cravings,” after the two cookbooks she’s released. Teigen describes cooking as “a time of peace” for herself. So maybe peace out to her tuna melt sandwich or the fried chicken wings that are a favorite of her husband, John Legend.


Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, comes from a cooking Italian family. Her father started his own restaurant in New York and also published a cookbook. And apparently, Lady Gaga has inherited the family’s cooking genes. Her Instagram account occasionally features photos of her culinary activities. Sure, sometimes it’s topless cooking. But other times it’s more poignant like in the post she shared about her bringing food to the family of her dear friend who passed away. Want to try a Gaga/Germanotta family favorite? Check out her recipe for whole wheat pasta with a sweet fennel sauce.
