Asked by TMZ whether Hart was awake, she said: “He’s fine. He is awake.”

A California Highway Patrol collision report cited by Associated Press said Hart was a passenger in a car which is believed to have tumbled down an embankment in the hills above Malibu on Sunday.

The report said Hart and the driver both suffered “major back injuries” and were taken to hospital.

The driver of the car was not under the influence of alcohol, according to the report.

Hart’s representatives have been contacted for comment.
