Update: Nearly two months after Kevin Hart’s harrowing car accident, the actor/comedian posted a video on Instagram depicting his recovery process. Hart says, “Sometimes you can’t see the things that you’re meant to see. But after my accident, I see things differently. I see life from a whole new perspective. My appreciation for life is through the roof.” Hart thanks his family, friends, and fans for getting him through recovery and for continuing to help him heal, and he makes clear that if he has to slow his career to focus on getting better, he’s willing to do that.

Following a car accident over Labor Day weekend, numerous actors and entertainers have come out to show support on social media for Kevin Hart. The incident occurred around 1 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 1, after the car Hart was in “rolled over and landed in a ditch,” causing him to suffer “major back injuries,” according to Us Weekly.

Hart was driving with producer Jared Black and personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman in the car, and all three were hospitalized from the accident. Us Weekly reported that Black was driving the car when he “lost control.” And while the other two passengers were stuck inside the car, Hart was able to leave “the scene to his nearby residence to get medical attention.” Later, Hart was admitted to Northridge Hospital Medical Center for his injuries.

Hart is currently recuperating from surgery from the accident, and many stars took to Instagram and Twitter to send the actor and comedian their best wishes.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who has co-starred with Hart in numerous films like Jumanji, Central Intelligence, and Hobbs & Shaw, posted a photo on social media of the two working on Jumanji with the message: “Stop messing with my emotions brother @kevinhart4real. We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong.”
