A California Highway Patrol collision report says Hart, 40, was a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that went off Mulholland Highway and rolled down an embankment in the hills above Malibu on Sunday.

The report says Hart and the driver, 28-year-old Jared Black, both suffered ‘major back injuries’ and were taken to hospitals.

Another passenger, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.
