The horrific accident of a Kevin Hart car has Dr. Phil was shaken because, like Kevin, he owns a classic car … and now he realizes that he comes with some serious safety concerns.
Doc tells TMZ Live that Chevy & # 39; 57 is the same as Hart Plymouth Barracuda's 1970 because it is equipped with belts but not seat belts … and he doesn't know what to do with this.
As Dr. Phil says – they don't make cars today like they used to. .. and this is not always good. It shows us that there really is no way to easily install seat belts over your shoulders the way a car is built. That's not the case with Kevin's Barracuda – the shoulders could be fitted.
Phil points to old cars like hiss and Kevin doesn't perform nearly as well in catastrophic tests as modern vehicles do without making changes … survival rates for crashes are much lower. In fact, he says stunned Hart is still alive.
As we told you … Hart suffered serious injuries – including 3 spinal fractures – when his classic carriage crashed through the Mulholway highway in the Malibu region early Sunday. The driver, his friend Jared Black also suffered severe back injuries.
Although their injuries may not have been completely avoided if the car had been equipped with seat belts or airbags, they certainly would not have injured. … and installing them now is paramount to Dr. Phil.
Because as he implies … if it can happen to Kevin, it can happen to him.
