The accident Plymouth actor Kevin Hart will receive an unexpected continuationSeptember 15, 2019
California police will seize the opportunity to tweak some state traffic laws.
Kevin Hart, known for his comedy movie roles, and his friend Jared Black were involved in an accident at the Plymouth ‘Cuda restomode in early September this year. Black, who was driving, lost control, and the car flew off the highway. According to some reports, no one was seriously injured, but Kevin Hart is currently undergoing rehabilitation, and Black is still in the hospital. According to other unconfirmed reports, Hart was injured in his back and cannot walk yet, but Black left the scene of the accident on his own.
California traffic police are trying to determine the cause of the accident, for which they have already stated the need to disassemble the restomode and examine its components. According to one version, the malfunction of the car led to the accident. In addition, the agency is going to appeal to the state authorities with the requirement to adopt some additional regulations in order to reduce the likelihood of recurrence of such accidents.
For example, the police will ask to legislate the need to equip all automobiles with safety belts without exception – even those for which this was not originally provided for in the design (for example, classic cars). According to rumors, “Plymouth” Kevin Hart just did not have belts. Retromobiles and restomodes that have undergone restoration or built from scratch should, according to the department, undergo more stringent technical control before being allowed on public roads.
Meanwhile, the 1970 “Barracuda”, on which Kevin Hart took off from the road, is not a retro car: this is a restoode called Menace, built by the famous SpeedKore atelier for the SEMA tuning show, and differs very seriously from the original Plymouth ‘Cuda. For example, the coupe was equipped with a carbon body, reinforced suspension and a modern 6.4-liter V8 with a supercharger developing 720 hp.
