Kevin Hart shared an emotional video Tuesday night chronicling his physical and emotional recovery after suffering a near-fatal car crash last month.
“Basically what you realize is that you’re not in control,” Hart narrates at the beginning of the video, which he posted to Instagram. “No matter how much you think you’re in control, you’re not in control. At the end of the day, it can all be over, man.”
As Hart speaks, the words “September 1, 2019, I was involved in an accident, my world was changed forever” appear on the screen.
News footage from the time then describes the accident: Hart was hospitalized after his car rolled into an embankment in Malibu Hills, Calif. Two other people had to be cut out of the vehicle: one with “major back injuries” like Hart, and the other with no serious injuries, according to the police report. While the car belongs to Hart, he was not driving at the time of the crash and the driver was not under the influence of alcohol.
“After my accident, I see things differently. I see life from a whole new perspective and my appreciation for life is through the roof.” He goes on to thank his family, friends, fans, and those who have stuck by him.
