Dwayne Johnson has admitted his pal Kevin Hart is “lucky” to be alive, after he was involved in a terrifying car crash last week.
The actor sustained serious back injuries when a car he was a passenger in crashed on a highway in California, and tumbled down an embankment in the hills above Malibu.
Kevin was scheduled to appear on the first episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show this week, but following his hospitalisation, his Jumanji co-star Dwayne stepped in to replace him.
During his interview, Dwayne gave fans an update on Kevin’s condition, and said: “Everything is good, I spoke with Kevin, I actually refer to him as my son.”
“I connected with him today. And you know what? These things happen in life and thankfully he was strapped in nicely to his car seat,” he joked.
“Honestly, I mean, thank God, it could’ve been a lot worse.”
“So, he’s a lucky man, and he knows it too. I wish him the best and a speedy recovery and I’m gonna see him soon,” he added.
