Right back on @nbcbrooklyn99 the morning after the results show for @agt!!! I love ACTING as much as I love HOSTING! Especially when you’re on a show as great as this! @nbc has truly made my dreams come true as I am so blessed to be able to do BOTH! Day by day... in every way.. I strive to get better and better! Let’s GO Y’ALL!
"I’m here to tell him, and that’s why I wanted to say, 'Hey, man. I’m here for you. I got your back,'" Crews said. "Believe me, most of Hollywood and most people I know are supporting Kevin; really, really pushing for his speedy recovery.
"Just get better, man. Don’t rush it," he added. "Come on back. We’re waiting for you."
Earlier in the week, Crews joined other celebrities in praying for Hart’s speedy recovery after news broke of his terrible accident.
The “Night School” star was with two friends at the time of the accident – 28-year-old Jared Black, who was driving, and his fiancée, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman who is also a personal trainer for Hart’s wife, Eniko.
Hart and Black reportedly sustained major injuries and had to be hospitalized. While the latter’s current condition is unknown, the comedian is said to have undergone surgery to correct three spinal fractures.
The medical procedure was successful, but Hart is reportedly still in a lot of pain and has weeks of extensive physical therapy to look forward to if he’s to make a full recovery.
Recently released 911 calls provide more details about the moments following the crash. In one call obtained by E! News, a witness told the operator the vehicle’s roof appeared to be crushed and the door smashed.
In a separate 911 call obtained by TODAY, an unidentified female calling from Hart’s residence (where he initially went following the accident) told the dispatcher, "I need someone to come get him."
"I don’t know what happened. He’s just here. He’s not coherent at all. He can’t move," the caller added before explaining that the incident occurred "20 minutes ago. … outside of our gated community."

In the meantime, Hart can rely on the support and assistance from Hollywood pals like his “Jumanji” co-star Dwayne Johnson. Johnson cut short his honeymoon to fill in for his injured friend who had been billed as the "first guest ever" on Kelly Clarkson’s new eponymous show.
