The report says Hart and the driver, 28-year-old Jared Black, both suffered "major back injuries" and were taken to hospitals.

Another passenger, 31-year-old Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.

The CHP report says the car immediately went out of control as it turned from a canyon road on to the highway.

The report says the driver was not under the influence of alcohol.

A representative for Hart did not immediately reply to messages, the Associated Press reported.
