Nick Hogan, son of wrestling icon Hulk Hogan and brother of female impersonator Brooke Hogan, suffered serious injuries when he crashed his car into a median last night in Clearwater, FL. His passenger, a yet unnamed male, is currently in critical condition. TMZ reports:
Law enforcement tells TMZ the accident occurred around 7:31 PM ET. According to police, a Toyota Supra, driven by Nick Bollea (Hogan’s real name), was traveling at a very high rate of speed when it lost control and hit a raised median. The car was flipped around and the back end hit a palm tree. The impact, we’re told, “destroyed the entire car.” The two male occupants were flown by Medivac helicopter from the accident scene to a hospital in St. Petersburg. We’re told both men had “very very serious” injuries. The accident happened on Court Street, a main drag in downtown Clearwater, causing the entire street to be shut down for hours.”
Downtown Court Street is a one lane road with a lot of traffic lights, so it’s unclear why Nick Hogan was speeding. Maybe he was being chased. Or maybe he didn’t want to be seen in a yellow Toyota Supra. I’ll admit, that has to be a little embarrassing.
Update: Radio personality and close friend of Hulk Hogan, Bubba the Love Sponge, says Nick has been released and is currently resting at home. The passenger? ” The other boy John, needs our prayers…thats all i can say at this point.” That can’t be good.
Update II: Nick’s

On behalf of my family, we ask that your thoughts and prayers be with John and his loved ones.” Source
