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 just quickly turned on all news media on my TV & am finding nothing about this accident. I reckon Hogan's son isn't slutty enough like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Nicole Richie to be newsy!!

My prayers are with all the Hogan family.

I remember that one episode where Nick was trying to get his drift license and he smashed his expensive race car. Rather than letting it end there, Hulk gets on the phone and buys a new car for precious, which is brought to the track and then precious promptly smashed that one as well. Hulk's response - "I'm proud of you". Let this be a lesson about spoiling your kids. Just because your kid gets up one day and decided to be a race car driver doesn't mean they are ready to turn pro at 16. It should have been strictly a hobby until he graduated high school.

oh, i am so truely sad to hear this happened! i hope nick and the passenger will survive and recover. i wish nothing but love, good wishes and prayers to nick, his family, the passenger and his loved ones.
now, for those of you posting these negative, opinionated, and mean spirited comments-SHAME ON YOU!! where is your humanity? your empathy? your sympathy and your heart? good grief - the injured and their familes/loved ones are all really hurting now. you are entitled to your opinions but PLEASE save it for a more appropriate time. truely, how would you feel if it was your child/brother/parent in nick's situation and people were saying the things you are? you were clearly raised without class or tact. i hope that if you are ever in nick's situation you will have others wishing you well instead of passing judgement without knowing any of the facts.
now, back to the situation that deserves all of our attention and focus, hang in there nick! it is amazing what people overcome with strength and determination. you will be in my prayers tonight..

Give Nick a break! Don't you all remember doing something extremely stupid that could have resulted in serious injury or death? I do. When I was a teenager I had that "need for speed" that could have easily turned into disaster. I am very fortunate it never did. So, give Nick a break and some prayers.

Nick better hope his passamger lives. Nick seems like a nice kid, but after watching their show he is a bit of an air head.

Lets not jump the gun, this kid is a decent human being just like his -FATHER- lets keep him in our prayers. Regardless if he was speeding or not, people automatically assume the negative, if you live in a glass house please cast the first stone ....

My thoughts and Prayers are less with the Hogan family because they are celebrity's and have plenty of hangers on to support them. They are more with the passenger and his family who didn't have control over his fate.
I do hope they both live.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. To those of you that are posting such insensitive comments, you obviously have never been in an accident or had anyone closed to you affected by one. This is a very serious matter and they are called ACCIDENTS for a reason. That is what they are. I don't think anyone plans on going out and doing something like this. Nick, you have people out here that care and we are all pulling for you!
