Kevin Hart has opened up about the September car crash that left him hospitalized with a severe back injury.

The comedian took to Instagram late Tuesday evening, Oct. 29, with a touching video to share his journey from tragedy to triumph.

The video opens up with a black screen that reads, “September 1, 2019, I was in a car accident.” There is audio playing behind the video with Hart’s voice as he says, “Basically what you realize is that you’re not in control. No matter how much you think you’re in control. you’re not in control. And at the end of the day, it can all be over.”

In the nearly two-minute video, Hart gives people an inside look into his daily experience from his near-death car accident, to his road to recovery.

He continued his voiceover message saying, “You know when God talks, you got to listen. I swear life is funny cause some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being the things that you needed most.”

Hart shows visuals of the news reports from the car accident, being in the hospital, being under the care of chiropractors, physical therapy and more.

In the rest of the video the multitalented actor reflected on the lessons he has learned from the tragedy, while giving thanks to his family, friends and his overall support system.
