Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has urged his friend to "stay strong".

US comedian Kevin Hart is reported to have been left with major injuries after being involved in car accident in California.

According to a California Highway Patrol collision report, cited by Associated Press, Kevin was a passenger in a car that fell 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”.

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

The 1970 Plymouth Barracuda is reported to have gone immediately out of control as it turned from a canyon road on to the highway.

The report says the driver was not under the influence of alcohol.

HuffPost UK has contacted a spokesperson for Kevin for comment and is awaiting a response. 

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sent Kevin a touching message following reports of the car accident.

The pair have a long-standing friendship after starring alongside one another in numerous films including Jumanji and Central Intelligence.

Alongside a photograph of the pair from Jumanji, The Rock wrote: “Stop messing with my emotions brother @kevinhart4real. We have a lot more laughing to do together.

“Love you man. Stay strong,” he added.
