Hollywood actor Kevin Hart is currently "able to walk and move his extremities" but he still might need surgery, US reports are saying.

The dad-of-three is recovering in hospital after he was left with "major back injuries" after a horrific crash on Sunday morning in California.

Medics are hopeful that the 40-year-old will make a full recovery, but The Blast reports that he's undergoing tests to determine which back surgery he may need.

Hart reportedly left the crash scene on Mulholland Highway to call paramedics shortly after the accident occurred.

28-year-old Jared Black, who was driving Kevin's rare 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, sustained back injuries and was taken to another hospital.

Jared's fiance and Kevin's wife's personal trainer, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of minor pain.

A California Highway Patrol collision report said Jared lost control of the vehicle as he turned onto the highway.

The car then veered off the road and rolled down an embankment in the early hours of Sunday morning. Hart has received floods of heartfelt messages from A-list fans and friends.

The Rock pleaded with the Jumanji: The Next Level star to "stay strong" for the laughing they have to do together; "Stop messing with my emotions brother."

Presenter and Brooklyn 99 star Terry Crews tweeted: "Get well soon, brother." Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston posted a photo to his Instagram with the caption:

“Let’s all send him positive energy and healing thoughts. He’s a good human. Get well soon, brother. B."

Hart's rare 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, known as 'The Menace', was unrecognisable in the images of the wreckage, as the roof and bonnet was ripped off and doors almost flattened.

"I hope this will make people aware of the dangers at these parties and to be more careful."

Theo is now blind in one eye after a cork hit him in the eye at a Champagne spray party, with his eyeball freakishly splitting open.

The 28-year-old was rushed to hospital and has undergone two surgeries in Ibiza, but is now blind in his right eye. Theo confirmed the news and thanked Kaz for flying out to support him.

In an Instagram post, Theo wrote: “Thanks for all the messages and support I’ve got over the last couple days they’re all very much appreciated!"

“So yeah basically 2 eye surgeries later after a really unfortunate accident, I’ve lost all vision in my right eye as it got split in half, who would have thought a champagne cork would be the end of me…

"But I still have 1 eye left, looking at the bright side of things. Thanks for flying out to look after me as well babe. If anyone knows where sells cool eye patches let me know."

His Love Island friends reached out to him after his post, with Caroline Flack posting; “Sending love.”

Marcel Somerville said: “Ah bro sorry to hear this news, everything will be blessed, mad things happen in life but we roll with the punches. Man's just got a new niche fashion accessory to rock.”

Theo’s close friend Georgia Harrison wrote on her Instagram stories about Theo and Kaz, saying:

“Love then so much words couldn’t even describe. Get well soon. @theo_campbell91 and @kazcrossley you are the most amazing girlfriend. Thank god for you.”

She also commented under his Instagram post writing: “Love you more than anything in the world. Nothing will hold you back I promise xxxxxxxx.”

Sources have told OK! online that Theo’s bizarre accident happened at a Champagne spray party in Ibiza.

The insider said: “Theo was partying at the champagne spray party with sunglasses on, when some champagne got in his eye.

“He removed his glasses to rub the champagne out of his eye, when a cork flew into his eye. The cork was travelling really fast and Theo’s eyeball was split entirely open.

“It took a moment for people around Theo to realise what had happened, but people started screaming and panicking when they saw his eye."

Kaz wrote to her Instagam today about his medical treatments; “Got him back out of surgery what are u like babe,” followed by a heart emoji.

The pair began dating after her split from Josh Denzel, who she met in the villa last year. Theo left the villa without finding romance during his time.

Gwyneth Paltrow is in hot water after a 2016 skiing accident left a retired optometrist with a concussion and broken ribs. She is now being sued for reckless skiing by 72-year-old Terry Sanderson.

The Utah man has also accused Paltrow of fleeing the scene after crashing into his back, screaming as she did it. Local Utah news station KUTV, Sanderson is also claiming Paltrow was "out of control".

A lawsuit has now been filed against the Hollywood actress; according to court documents, Sanderson said, "Paltrow got up, turned and skied away, leaving Sanderson stunned, lying in the snow, seriously injured." Yikes.

The skiing instructor who allegedly witnessed the incident has blamed Sanderson for causing the accident, but Sanderson is insisting that the instructor is lying and refrained from helping him while injured.

The man apparently suffered a brain injury and four broken ribs, and said Paltrow "accepted no responsibility" and abandoned the Deer Valley Resort.

 Sanderson recalled "feeling very sore, and my brain felt like I'd been injected with novocaine, I don't know how to describe it,” he said at a recent press conference.

He has decided to sue Paltrow for $3.1 million. In a statement, Paltrow denied the claims through spokeswoman Heather Wilson; "This lawsuit is without merit and we expect to be vindicated."

The lawsuit maintains that the instructor skiing with Paltrow and her family filed a false incident report saying Paltrow didn't cause the accident.

Deer Valley Resort spokeswoman Emily Summers stated that the resort, which is also being sued, can not comment on pending legal matters.

Chrissy Teigen has recently found herself at the eye of a storm of controversy due to old tweets getting dug up from the dead, and 2019 doesn't look great either for her.

The social media star was celebrating New Year's Eve in Times Square on Monday night, and between the rain and bitterly cold temperatures, it wasn't a glorious occasion.

After counting down the annual ball drop alongside Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones, the former supermodel goes in for a hug and ends up with an umbrella in the eyeball.

NBC's special broadcast was on live television, so naturally the clip went viral on Twitter pretty damn quick. 

She joked; "I'm okay!" after writing: "7am. Heading back out to Times Square to find my eyeball." Ouchie.

The SNL star was hugely apologetic over Twitter (and in person, we assume) and posted to her own account:

The actress commented;

"I can't believe I hit Chrissy Teigen in the face!! Lord!! I love you boo!! So sorry!!"

It wasn't either of their finest New Year's Eve moments, but it was HILARIOUS and we're grateful for the comedic content on our Twitter feeds.

Happy 2019 gals, has anyone else's year started off with a similarly embarrassing/painful moment?

Local government said people are being treated for a variety of injuries including broken legs, broken arms and head injuries.

A 16-year-old concert goer told Spanish publication Faro de Vigo: “We were on the walkway when it opened up. I fell on people and people fell on me. I was hit on the head and then some sort of container fell as well. I tried to get out and someone helped me.”

A 16-year-old boy has tragically died following a traffic collision in Co. Kildare on the 3rd July.

The boy was cycling at Oughterard, Straffan at 4.50pm on the 3rd July, when he was involved in a collision with a car.

He was taken to Beaumont Hospital where he was treated for head injuries, but died this weekend.

The driver of the car a woman in her 40s was not injured.

A Garda investigation into the collision is underway.

Our thoughts are with the boy's family and friends at this devastating time. 

Earlier in the summer, the garda urged cyclists to take care and bike safely on the roads, following their report that 171 motorcyclists have been killed and 629 seriously injured since 2010.

"Motorcyclists and cyclists are among our most vulnerable of road users because they have very little protection in the event of a crash. Cyclists can help reduce this vulnerability by taking some very simple steps. Wear the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and high visibility clothing to make yourself visible to other road-users plus ride with your dipped headlight on," said Garda Commissioner Mr Donál Ó Cualáin.
