The teenage son of Tampa Bay's most popular wrestler, Hulk Hogan, was injured after his yellow sports car careened out of control and struck a palm tree in the median of the four-lane highway on Court Street, police said.
Nick Bollea, known as Nick Hogan, 17, was driving with his friend, John J. Graziano, 22, of 1225 Curlew Road in Dunedin, toward downtown Clearwater when the wreck occurred, police said.
Bollea's condition is described as non-life-threatening, and Graziano is in critical condition, Clearwater police spokesman Wayne Shelor said. Both were taken by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. The high-speed crash occurred at 8 p.m. Sunday, police said.
Bollea was driving his Toyota Supra eastbound on Court Street when they crashed. The car was destroyed on impact, police said. The Fire Department had to free the men. Hulk Hogan was at the scene.
Police said the wreck shut down traffic - eastbound and westbound - on Court Street, the primary traffic artery in the city. This is Bollea's second accident in as many years involving a sports car.
He was driving a yellow Lamborghini when it caught fire in Bay Harbor Islands in Miami in September, according to a Miami Herald published report. Bollea was driving the 2001 Lamborghini Diablo VT through a residential area, according to the Miami Herald report.
The car caught fire as he was driving and he was able to get out of the car before it burst into flames, the Herald reported last year.
Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, is popular for his reality show, "Hogan Knows Best" and is one of Tampa Bay's best-known celebrities. His children have gained notoriety because of the show.
Hogan had moved his family to Miami so his children could pursue acting and singing careers. His daughter, Brooke, has a music career, while Nick's passion is cars, according to a bio on the show's Web site.
On a recent show, Hogan's wife and his children want one of the biggest wrestling stars to undergo a makeover. They make fun of the way the Hulkster dresses. They tell him he has to dress better now that he's living in Miami.
Earlier this month, Bollea reported $100,000 in custom jewelry was missing from their Miami Beach home, according to news reports. He said a thief stole his diamonds. They recently moved back from Miami to their Belleair mansion.
As of 9PM last night Nick was heading to get catscan's and had broken arm and ribs. His friend is in critical condition with head trauma.
nick already has been released with just broken bones and bruises. But the other guy i guess is in critical condition, and if he does make it. Will probably be a veg the rest of his life.

now you can see by the looks of this car that he was going FAST! that's why peoply that buy expensive cars like that usually undergo a driving school on how to drive high end cars like that.

Ugh, what a waste.
At this rate the Hulkster should give him a Pinto or a Yugo.
