Kevin, 40, and friends Jared and Rebecca crashed off the side of the Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles into a ditch in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda around 1 a.m. on Sunday, September 1. The Night School star's security team rushed him from the scene of the accident to his Calabasas home before calling 911. An unidentified woman who placed the 911 call could be heard telling the dispatcher on the recording that Kevin "was not coherent at all" and "couldn't move."

The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star went under the knife and was released from the hospital on September 11. He is expected to make a full recovery but he will require months of extensive physical therapy.

Kevin shocked fans by returning to work to shoot promos for Jumanji on Wednesday, October 9. Although he was allegedly mobile and in good spirits, his attorney Andrew Brettler clarified that Kevin's day on set did not mean he was ready to resume his career commitments in a full capacity.

"Kevin has not been in full costume for these shoots and he's not walking much for them either —sitting through most of the day — even though he can walk on his own. Kevin doesn't anticipate going back to work full time until early next year, assuming everything stays on track with his physical therapy," Andrew explained to E! News.
