Kevin Hart Too Injured To Accept His Award For Charity Work

The 40-year-old is still recovering from spinal surgery after he was severely injured in a car crash.

(AllHipHop News) Kevin Hart has been forced to drop out of an awards show appearance to focus on his recovery from spinal surgery following a car crash.

The comedian was billed to accept an honor at the Legacy Of Vision Gala in Los Angeles tonight (October 24), but it has been revealed host Nick Cannon will collect the prize on the 40-year-old’s behalf.

Hart and his wife Eniko were to be feted for their charity work with the Los Angeles Mission.

The “Ride Along” star was hospitalized after a near-fatal car crash in Calabasas, California at the beginning of September, and the gala was set to be his first public appearance since the accident.
