Hulk Hogan’s son Nick seriously injured in car crash

Hogan Knows Best star Nick Bollea, Hulk Hogan’s son, was “seriously injured in a car crash Sunday evening in Clearwater,” Fla., the St. Petersburg Times reports.

Nick was driving when his car hit the median and eventually slammed into a tree; his passenger “was reported in critical condition,” and Nick “was less seriously injured than his passenger,” according to the paper. Both “had to be extracted from the crumpled Toyota Celica Supra.”

The paper has pictures of the scene, where “Hulk Hogan arrived … flanked by three Clearwater police officers” and “went back and forth between the car and ambulance as the two young men were cut free.”

Citing a Clearwater Police Department spokesperson, the AP reports that “[a]lcohol is not believed to have played a part in the crash. The crash seems to have been caused by excessive speed.”

Update: On Monday, Nick “was released from the hospital,” the AP reports. However, his passenger, “22-year-old John J. Graziano of Dunedin, … remained in critical condition Monday at Bayfront Medical Center.”
