Nick Hogan

In Serious Car Accident

8/26/2007 10:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827_hogan_fm_bn-1UPDATE: Nick Hogan is reportedly in serious condition, but the passenger in the car sustained more severe injuries. He is listed in critical condition.

Hulk Hogan's son, Nick, was seriously injured in a car accident tonight in Clearwater, Fla.

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.

No 911 call was made to police. The accident was called in by an officer who rolled up right after the crash happened.

I can't believe how daft some of you people are. Passing judgment on a kid in an accident when NO ONE knows the details or cause of the crash. So, quick to say things when you know nothing. Its quite annoying....I hope everyone pulls through.

Go with the Flow!    

I PRAY AND HOPE THAT HE WILL BE OK! DO YOU PEOPLE HAVE TO BE SO CRUEL?
ACCIDENTS CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE AT ANYTIME. JUST BECAUSE HE IS A CELEBRITY DOES NOT MEAN HE IS AT FAULT.

IF YOU HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY DON'T SAY NOTHING AT ALL!
YOUR BEST BET IS TO SHUT UP AND KEEP YOUR TWO BIT OPINIONS TO YOURSELVES! SELFISH, CRUEL AND HEARTLESS PEOPLE.

Hulk Hogan's Son And A Friend Injured In A Car Crash
By Chris Echegaray

Published: August 26, 2007

CLEARWATER - Nick Bollea, son of Tampa Bay's most popular wrestler, Hulk Hogan, and his friend were injured after his car careened out of control and struck a palm tree in the median of the four lane highway on Court Street, police said.

Both were taken by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. The high-speed crash occurred at 8 p.m., police said.

Bollea was driving eastbound on Court Street, approaching downtown Clearwater when it crashed. The car was destroyed on impact, police said. The Fire Department had to free the men.

Police said the wreck is shutting down traffic – east and westbound – on Court Street, the primary traffic artery in the city. Police are at the scene interviewing witnesses who say the car was moving at a high rate of speed.

Hulk 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 website.

Terry "Hulk Hogan" Bollea, the popular wrestler also known for his reality show, "Hogan Known Best," is one of Tampa Bay's most popular celebrities. His children have gained notoriety because of the show.

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 in Miami. They joke that he's no longer in Clearwater, where people don't dress as nice.

-Naomi, shut-up. I don't need to read your negativity. How about you learn to read properly and not be so judgemental!
I said he could be dead or die. Dead-meaning he can be dead,right now, or he could DIE-meaning he can still be alive.

Consider yourself, corrected.

My prayers are with his family and for him a speedy recovery. Makes no difference if he is a celebrity or not, he is a young man with parents and family that love him. May the Lord suround him with His healing light. God bless him and his family.
