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.

Hart had purchased the car for his 40th birthday in July to add to his extensive fast car collection.

"I added some more muscle to the family for my 40th….welcome home 'Menace,'" he wrote on Instagram after buying the car.

Temple Street Children's University Hospital has claimed that a shocking 842 children who were attending its Emergency Department in 2018 were living in emergency accomodation, or didn't have a fixed address.

This means that there has been a 29 percent increase in the amount of patients who are being discharged into homelessness in Dublin, and one-quarter of the children were under one year old.

In 2017, the number of children discharged from ED who had no fixed address was 651.

The majority children last year presented with medical ailments such as chest infections, seizures, asthma, high temperatures and vomiting.

On the other side, 23 percent of children presented with trauma such as head lacerations, burns, self-harm and hand and arm injuries.

In the final three months of 2018 alone, 260 children attended Temple Street's Emergency Department without a fixed address.

Head Medical Social Worker at Temple Street, Anne-Marie Jones commented on the situation, condemning it as "shameful";

She said: "When these children leave our ED, they stay in temporary accommodation with cramped conditions and no appropriate cooking, washing or play facilities."

She added; "This results in accidents or traumas that wouldn’t normally happen if these families were housed in a family home.” 

Dr Ike Okafor, Emergency Medicine Consultant , meanwhile, argued that children's recovery is massively affected by their living situation.

Dr Okafor claims that; "There are children where you do what you can do in hospital, and then you hope they'll go home and recover."

"But these accommodations aren't conducive for recovery for some of the conditions – so they're not the ideal," he said.

He described cases of children undergoing surgery and then having nowhere to go from there, as well as incidents involving children being assaulted trying to find accommodation.

The most recent official homeless figures from November show there were 3,811 children in emergency accommodation that month.

On Wednesday night she was positively glowing on the BRITs red carpet in a delicate cream and gold gown, but fast forward 24 hours and Perrie Edwards' glamourous life had taken a turn for the worse.

The singer took to Twitter last night to show off some seriously nausea-inducing injuries, revealing she had accidentally set herself on fire earlier in the day.

"So today I had an accident, and by accident I mean accidentally set myself on fire," she wrote alongside a photo of her badly blistered and burnt right hand.

"The pilot light on my boiler blew up and set my arm/hand on fire. Not a pleasant experience."

And it wasn't just her post-BRITs hangover that had her in agony – the singer admitted she was left pretty shaken and hurt after the accident, as well as being down an item from her wardrobe.

"I'm in pain, full of blisters, there's not one hair left on my hand or arm and it burnt the sleeve of my favourite jumper. F**king nightmare.

"A little advice from me… STAY AWAY FROM FIRE!"

Poor Perrie – here's hoping those blisters heal up soon.


Running is an increasingly popular sport and there seems neon coloured joggers popping up everywhere you look. However, those who assume that running is nothing more than throwing on a pair of shoes are just asking for trouble.

Stick with us and you’ll be an injury-free running pro…

Buy the right shoes
Running shoes can help reduce injury as they alter your form and how your body deals with the repetitive movements. If your feet hurt after a run, it means that they are not the right ones for you.

Make sure you have a strong core
By keeping your muscles, ligaments and tendons nice and strong, you will automatically protect yourself. When your body is strong, it tells your brain to brace for impact before the foot hits the ground. Remember, strong is the new skinny.

Know your limits
Injuries can happen when you push yourself too far. Build up your running distance a little at a time and don’t assume that you will be able to run that 10k after a few laps around your estate. You won’t.

Now stop looking for excuses and get out there…
