Famous comedian Kevin Hart finally spoke about the car accident that almost claimed his life weeks ago.
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that the artist was involved in a fatal car accident while in his Plymouth Barracuda, a classic car he bought to celebrate his 40th birthday in July.
Both Hart and his friend Jared Black, who was by his side, suffered severe back injuries, according to multiple reports. He, however, had successful back surgery and was discharged from the Northridge Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Speaking about the incident, Hart, in a video on his Instagram page, said the accident had opened his eyes to see that he should stop living active life. He added that he now sees life differently and from a new perspective.
Hart wrote: “Basically, you realize you are not in control.” No matter how much you think you have control, you don’t have control, and, at the end of the day, everything can end.
“When God speaks, you have to listen. I swear life is fun because some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being what you needed most.
“In this case, I honestly feel that God basically told me to sit down. When you move too fast and sometimes you do too much, you can’t see the things you should see.
“But after my accident, I see things differently. I see life from a completely new perspective. My appreciation for life is in the clouds. I am grateful for my family, my friends. I am grateful for the people who simply travel with me and have been with me because you supported me.
“My fans, grateful for all their love and support. Don’t take it for granted today, because tomorrow is not promised. More importantly, I am grateful for God, grateful for life. ”
