Four days after the car crash that left actor Kevin Hart in the hospital with major injuries, the Los Angeles County Fire Department has released audio of the 911 phone call that first reported the incident and requested emergency services.

The call was made by a witness shortly after Hart, 40, crashed his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, according to the Associated Press.

During the distress call, the undisclosed witness told the dispatcher that the victim — who is believed to be Hart — “looked like he [was] hurting.”

“I need someone to come get him,” the witness said during the call, which was made from Hart’s home.

When asked by the dispatcher what had happened, the witness said, “I don’t know what happened. He’s just here. He’s not coherent at all.”

The individual revealed that the incident happened “like, 20 minutes” prior to the call, adding that Hart may have injured his back seriously.

At the time of the crash, Hart’s close friend Jared Black was driving. Black’s fiancée, Rebecca Broxterman, was also a passenger in the vintage car.
