Kevin Hart was spotted out running errands with a friend on November 2. The comedian voiced that he was taking things easy as he recovers from his near-fatal car crash on September 1. Despite his remarks of caution, the actor drove off in a vintage vehicle that didn’t have a shoulder harness like the car he was in during his accident.

Kevin, 40, was carrying several large takeout bags when he stopped to talk to cameras outside of a mall of Calabasas. “I’m doing good, man,” he said of his recovery. “I’m feeling great. I’m blessed to be alive, brother.” The Night School actor revealed that he wants to get back into comedy, but he’s in no rush. “It’s a process, gonna take some time. Right now, I’m relaxing, enjoying the family and recovering. That’s all that matters right now,” he said.

Kevin loaded his car with the takeout bags before getting into the driver’s seat of a 1969 Camaro. The vehicle did not appear to have a shoulder harness, just a lap belt. Many of the older car models, such as the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda he was found in after his September 1 crash, do not have the added safety feature of a shoulder harness. Kevin’s car at the time of the crash reportedly didn’t have proper airbags either.

The actor was hospitalized for 10 days following his accident before he entered a rehabilitation facility to recover. He eventually returned home at the end of September. Kevin spoke out about it for the first time on October 30. He shared an emotional video to Instagram which showed him struggling to stand up without a walker and crying through hours of physical therapy. The end of the video showed him getting back his strength and working out with weights.

“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,” Kevin, 40, said in a voice-over at the opening of the video. He shared footage from the accident and said, “At the end of the day, it can all be over, man.”

“When God talks, you gotta listen,” he continued. “I swear, life is funny. Because some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being the thing that you needed most. And in this case, I honestly feel like God basically told me to sit down. When you’re moving too fast and you’re doing too much sometimes you can’t see the things that you’re meant to see.”

Kevin added, “After my accident, I see things differently. I see life from a whole new perspective. My appreciation for life is through the roof. I'm thankful for my family, my friends. I'm thankful for the people that simply ride with me and have been with me. Because you stood by me, my fans. I'm thankful for all of your love and support."
