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 remember seeing Nick, his sister, father and mother at the Barne & Noble in Clearwater. Hulk was surrounded by kids. I remember looking at Hulk's kids thinking: "These kids are spoiled." At that time he was just a teen driving a yellow Hummer.

I guess these coming days or months are going to be a time for Hulk and his family to rethink their stardom, the Osbornesque sideshow, and maybe consider the real basics of family life - which isn't spoiling your kids with all the toys you had to do without as a child.

Best of healing.

#37-Curiouslymorbid, lol. I know how you feel, I so badly wanted to see what they looked like since dental records were used to identify them, and they weren't burned. It was simply the impact that destroyed their bodies. Anyway, they were an older couple, I really don't think they had a Myspace page( although age doesn't matter). Here are 2 links , and it has been a week, it's messed me all the way up. http://www.legacy.com/Tiempo/Obituaries.asp?Page=Notice&PersonID=93181477

Fox News is not reporting any deaths as of a couple of minutes ago. However, they did say they were reportedly drag racing.

When you watch Hogan Knows Best, you see a family who is very close, parents who really love their children. Kids don't always make the best decisions, this was a mistake. Hopefully Nick and his buddy will pull through this accident ok. I don't believe that this is something to make fun of, it is very sad. His family must be devastated right now.
