The pimped Plymouth Barracuda from 1970, the car with which actor Kevin Hart (40) had an accident last week, would not be equipped with the right safety accessories. TMZ believes that based on garage owners who specialize in staging such old cars.
Several experts tell the website that it is “highly unusual” that a car with 720 hp under the hood is not equipped with a five-point seat belt and a roll cage, as would have been the case with the comedian’s car. The company that pimped Hart’s car did not want TMZ to respond to the possible lack of safety accessories.
The accident happened last week in the night from Saturday to Sunday in the hills of Malibu. Kevin Hart suffered a serious back injury, but is now on the better hand after an operation. A month-long rehabilitation awaits him.
