Officials have determined that reckless driving caused the car crash that put Kevin Hart in the hospital with major back injuries.

A California Highway Patrol report released Thursday said a man driving Hart’s vintage muscle car accelerated recklessly on a Southern California highway, causing the Sept. 1 accident that left the comedian and driver seriously injured.

Investigators say producer Jared Black was turning onto Mulholland Highway near Malibu when he accelerated and lost control of the comic actor’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda with Hart and the driver’s fiancée, Rebecca Broxterman, as passengers. The car then careened down an embankment and slammed into a tree.

Investigators say it appears no one in the car was wearing a seat belt.

The Associated Press reports Hart released a statement later Thursday saying he has nothing but love for Black and wishes him a speedy recovery.

USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Hart.

According to People and E! Online, Hart was hospitalized for 10 days before being discharged to undergo physical therapy at a rehabilitation facility.

While the actor has stayed off social media since the crash, Hart’s wife has said the actor-comedian will be fine.

Hart featured the muscle car on Instagram in August, a gift to himself for his 40th birthday.
