Kevin Hart can't walk after he tried to beat former NFL star Stevan Ridley in a race.

"44 and sitting my a-- down!!!!! I got to be the dumbest man alive!!!!! What the f--- am I doing???? I blew my s---….I’m done. FML," Hart captioned the clip describing his recent chain of unfortunate events that led to his serious injuries.

In the video, Hart incorporated his renowned sense of humor, as he explained: "I'm in a wheelchair. Why? Well, because I tried to jump out there and do some young stuff."

An unfortunate chain of events has left Kevin Hart temporarily confined to a wheelchair.

"This debate was based off who's faster. Those that know me know, I'm pretty fast. Stevan said, 'Kevin, ain't no way you're gonna beat me.' Stevan is an ex-NFL running back [who] played for the New England Patriots. Very good guy," the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star recalled regarding how he ended up in a 40-yard dash.

The aftermath of the race quickly made Hart regret his decision to agree to a friendly competition, as it resulted in him injuring "all [his] s---."

While he can't walk currently, the injuries are fortunately only temporary and the Central Intelligence actor should be back on his feet soon enough. Hart decided to use his accident as a way to comically remind his peers that they are getting older.

The comedian hilariously confirmed his body does not have the same capabilities as it used to.

"To all my men and women out there that are 40 years old and above. It's not a game, respect that age," the comedian hilariously confessed. "Respect that age, or that age will make you respect it. I was just forced to respect it. This is just a public service announcement because I know people may see me out. And I don't want you to be alarmed, but I'm in a wheelchair."

Hart detailed his injured — including a torn lower abdomen and tears in his hip abductors, which prompted him to joke: "I don't know what that is but I tore them, I tore those, too. I can't walk."

"What are we competing for at this age? What am I doing? Why did I even race? Stupidest s--- ever, now I can't walk," the legendary comedian concluded, seemingly in disbelief by the reality of his situation.
