Report says driver’s recklessness caused crash injuring Kevin Hart

It has been determined that reckless driving was the cause of Kevin Hart's near-fatal accident in California, which resulted in the star requiring months of physical rehabilitation and major surgeries to fix his back.

It was known right from the time of the crash that Hart left the scene for reasons unknown, and left the driver, Jared Black, and passenger Rebecca Broxterman trapped inside the auto.

"I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery", Hart said in the statement to PEOPLE.

"While he's doing a little work here and there for the film, he doesn't expect to be fully back to work until the new year", Andrew shared. Also this week, Hart's "Night School' co-star Tiffany Haddish said that the actor is "doing really good" following his crash".

Kevin Hart has "nothing but love" for friend after California Highway Patrol reportedly finds Jared Black to blame for auto crash. Investigators say it appears no one in the auto was wearing a seatbelt. Both Hart and Black were then transported to nearby hospitals as a result of "major back injuries", a press release provided to ET by the CHP stated.

The same source noted that Hart has been "taking it easy" since the crash and is "not planning to go back to work full-time until the first of the year".

The "Get Hard" star - who also has Heaven, 14, and Hendrix, 11, with his ex-wife Torrei Hart - bought the vehicle back in July as a 40th birthday gift to himself.

The report also concluded that Black had violated the law, though he was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs while operating the vehicle. The sides were also smashed, and some doors couldn't be opened.

Hart got out of the auto and quickly left the scene, the report said.

The "Jumanji" sequel hits theaters in December.
