Kevin Hart has reportedly been spotted getting behind the wheel of a muscle car without a seat belt just two months after breaking his spine in a near-fatal crash.

The comedian, 40, was seen smiling as he got into a '69 Camaro in Calabasas, California.

The vintage car was of similar era to the one he almost died in a few weeks back on September 1.

According to TMZ, Kevin pulled away without having put on a seatbelt just two months after his near-death experience.

The incident comes just days after the Hollywood funny man shared an emotional video telling fans that he is "thankful for simply still being here".

Explaining the traumatic crash, he said: "After my accident I see things differently, I see life from a whole new perspective.

"My appreciation for life is through the roof. I'm thankful for my family, my friends."

He thanked fans for their "love and support," adding: "Don't take today for granted because tomorrow's not promised.

"More importantly I'm thankful for God, I'm thankful for life. I'm thankful for simply still being here."

The actor was a passenger in a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when the driver lost control, sped down an embankment and smashed into a tree near Malibu.

He was left with major back injuries from the accident, which authorities blamed on reckless driving.
