Black crashed the muscle car after turning onto Mulholland Highway.
“Black immediately lost control of the vehicle and the Plymouth left the road and rolled over down the northern embankment,” the CHP said in a statement.
He and the other passenger, identified as Rebecca Broxterman, were trapped inside. Hart and Black suffered “major back injuries” and were taken to nearby hospitals, according to the highway patrol.
