KEVIN HART suffered serious back injuries in a car crash this weekend.  He had surgery Sunday night, and his wife Eniko told TMZ, quote, “He’s gonna be just fine.”

Hart had purchased a vintage Plymouth Barracuda in July as a 40th birthday present for himself.  He named it “Menace“.

Early Sunday morning, Kevin’s friend Jared Black was driving the car in Malibu when it veered off the road, rolled over, and landed in a ditch.

Kevin was a passenger in the car, along with Black’s fiancée, who wasn’t seriously injured.  The car was totaled, and Black was also hospitalized with serious injuries.  According to “Entertainment Tonight”, he was NOT under the influence.

Kevin was able to get out of the car himself, but authorities had to cut the roof off to get to Black and his fiancée.  When Kevin got out, he reportedly had a member of his security team pick him up so he could get medical attention.

Kevin’s “Jumanji” co-star THE ROCK posted a picture of them on set and said, quote, “Stop messing with my emotions brother . . . We have a lot more laughing to do together.  Love you man.  Stay strong.”
