Default Actor Kevin Hart injured in a 70 Cuda

Seems the actor, Kevin Hart, was injured pretty badly in a wreck as a passenger in a 70 Cuda off the infamous Muholland Drive in CA. He owned the car, but was not driving. That road has claimed many a celebrity.

Kevin Hart's classic car from accident lacked safety features

TMZ spoke to "several owners of car customizing shops" who specialized in performance vehicles, who told them that it was "highly unusual" for cars with 720 horsepower -- like the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that Hart was riding in -- to not have a five-point harness seat belt and a roll cage.

In fact, the outlet spoke to Rad Rides by Troy, who build Joe Rogan his Hemi-powered 1970 Barracuda -- similar to Kevin's -- and it did have those safety features. Apparently the staff was "shocked" that Kevin's didn't.

They also reached out to the company that customized Kevin's car, SpeedKore, but they had no comment when asked about the car's safety features.

Kevin was riding with two friends -- one was reportedly airlifted to a Los Angeles hospital; the other walked away with minor injuries -- in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when it went off the road and crashed through a fence on Mulholland Highway near Malibu and Calabasas in the early-morning hours of Sept. 1.

According to TMZ, Kevin's security removed him from the scene of the accident prior to the paramedics arriving, taking him to his house before calling paramedics for treatment. The actor suffered serious back injury and doctors fused three sections of his spine. He will be undergoing physical therapy for several months.

----So many questions. The roof got removed in the accident and they escaped with the injuries noted? Did anyone in the car have their seatbelts utilized? I'm not saying that there is any funny business but we don't know the whole story...….Bill S

You see anything that looks like a seat belt? BTW . . . this car was a 2 seater. So where was the third person sitting?

Love how the media portrays the car as a "Vintage 1970 Musclecar...' that thing could not have been modified any further

Looks like the safety features of that guard rail were more a problem than the car itself. Looks like wood and plastic keeping him from driving down a ravine

This reminds me of a Nationwise Auto Parts bumper sticker my Dad had on the 70 Townsman wagon as a kid........."Ban low performance drivers not high performance cars".
