Hollywood star Kevin Hart made his first public appearance this weekend at the People's Choice Awards since the car crash, which left him with "major" back injuries.

“First and foremost, thank God, because I definitely don’t have to be here,” he said while accepting the award for the best comedy movie star of the year. His award was presented to him by Robert Downey Jr. 

"Being that I am, it makes me appreciate life even more. It makes me appreciate the things that really matter: family. I want to thank my wife, my kids, who really stepped up to the plate for me," Hart added. He then shout-out to his wife Eniko Parrish and his three children.

"I truly want to thank you guys for being there for at my difficult time," he said, thanking his fans.

Kevin is reportedly still having physical therapy over his injuries resulting from the crash.
