He reportedly suffered three fractures in his spine, but doctors believe that he is good enough to leave the hospital and enter a rehab facility where he is to stay throughout the recuperation period.
Sources close to the comedian says he has a positive attitude, saying, "I'm grateful to be alive".
CNN has reached out to representatives for Hart for comment.
Hart, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was hospitalised along with two others after his vintage auto smashed through a wooden fence and fell 10 feet into a gully off Mulholland Highway in California.
Kevin sustained severe back injuries when his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, driven by his pal Jared Black, veered off the road near his Los Angeles home in the early hours of September 1 and rolled down an embankment.

Clowney ultimately has the leverage - he has yet to sign his franchise tag offer sheet and until he does, he's unable to be moved. Until he does that, teams can continue to recruit him for the upcoming National Football League season.
It has also been reported that Kevin will need to return to the hospital as an out patient three times a week to make sure he is recovering properly, and it is thought it will be at least four months before the star is able to take on any new work.
The driver, 28-year-old Jared Black, also suffered back injuries and was hospitalized following the crash, while fellow passenger, 31-year-old personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman, only complained of pain.
Hart's friend, Dwayne Johnson, gave a recent update on the actor's health. "Thank God. I am glad, he is fine and he is awake", Parrish said. News in a statement that Hart is "expected to have a full recovery very soon".
"I spoke with Kevin, I actually refer to him as my son", said Johnson, joking about Hart's smaller size. "He's one of my best friends". He is a lucky man.
California Highway Patrol spokesman Weston Haver told Yahoo Entertainment excessive speed is being investigated as a factor in the crash. "I wish him the best", he added.
