Despite sustaining sever injuries from the Plymouth Barracuda Crash, Kevin Hart could be sued for safety negligence. Read the reason for this!

The recent crash involving American Comedian and Actor, Kevin Hart, in his Plymouth car could take a different turn. There are possibilities that the Hollywood star may be sued for negligence by not installing modem safety technology such as 5-point racing airbags.
