Kevin Hart's wife has said her husband" is awake" and "going to be just fine" following reports he was injured in a car accident.

His wife Eniko Hart has now told TMZ the star is doing well.

Asked about his condition, she replied: "He's great. He's going to be just fine."

"He's good," she added ."Everybody's good, thank God."

Asked by TMZ whether Hart was awake, she said: "He's fine. He is awake."

According to a California Highway Patrol collision report, Hart was a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that went off Mulholland Highway and rolled down an embankment in the hills above Malibu on Sunday.

The report says Hart and the driver, 28-year-old Jared Black, both suffered “major back injuries” and were taken to hospitals.

Another passenger, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.

The CHP report says the car immediately went out of control as it turned from a canyon road on to the highway.

The report says the driver was not under the influence of alcohol.

A representative for Hart did not immediately reply to messages.
