KEVIN HART RISKS FACING LAW CHARGES OVER CAR CRASH

Kevin Hart is reportedly “lawyering up” amid fears he will be sued over the muscle car crash which left one of his friends injured.

Reports from the US say the Hollywood star is “taking the heat” over the lack of safety devices fitted to his 720bhp Plymouth Barracuda.

According to TMZ, those in the car when it crashed believe Hart showed negligence for not having critical features like airbags and safety harnesses installed on the custom-made vintage motor.

The missing safeguards – standard in more modern vehicles – were not common back in the 1970s, so Hart reportedly passed on them for an extra bit of authenticity.

It’s also been claimed the company that customised the car could also be facing a lawsuit – as they should have insisted on fitting the safety features.

Hart was a passenger in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when it flipped off a highway in Malibu Hills – leaving him with three spinal fractures.

He has since been discharged from hospital after having back surgery.

Kevin Hart’s blue beauty is custom-made by Speedkore, based in Wisconsin, USA.

The high-powered vehicle is based around Plymouth’s third-generation Barracuda, recreating its classic styling with modern tech underneath.

Hart’s car has a Hellcat V-8 Hemi engine generating 720 bhp, propelling it from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

Its engine was also paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, which sends its power to the rear wheels.

The interior was also completely redone, and its dashboard was given a retro feel, to keep the 1970s look.

Pal Jared Black, 28, was driving the car – nicknamed ‘The Menace’ – and was airlifted to hospital after he was found trapped under its roof.

Amazingly, another friend Rebecca Broxterman, 31, escaped from the September 1 smash unharmed.
