On Sunday, Sept. 1, Hart and a woman identified as Rebecca Broxterman were passengers in Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda while his friend Jared Black was driving, according to California Highway Patrol.
The accident occurred at 12:45 a.m. when Black made a turn from Cold Canyon Road to Mulholland Highway in Calabasas and immediately lost control of the car, sending it off the road, rolling 30 feet down an embankment.
The roll-over crash crushed the roof of the car and Los Angeles County Fire had to use the jaws of life to retrieve Black and Broxterman.
Hart was able to leave the scene and was rushed to Dignity-Health Northridge Hospital.
According to Hart’s wife, he was “doing great” after undergoing surgery.
Black was brought to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center where he was scheduled to undergo back surgery. Broxterman was able to avoid serious injury in the accident.
CHP determined that Black was not under the influence while driving the vehicle.
