This was not his first accident related to excessive speed. Now his carelessness and need for a thrill may cost his friend his life. Nick should face charges.

Hey Linda, hey HULK!!!

A serious wake-up call for both of you!!

You both have endorsed Nick's racing career (at age 17....) and look what happened!!!

It's probably nice to have POLAROID sponsoring your son and picking up the tab for all of this, but is it really worth it??

Nick needs to take some time and mature a bit........

i hope the passenger will come out of this okay....

i love the hogans! i hope nick learns his lesson and doesn't speed or race his car outside of a racetrack. young boys in sportscars can easily spell trouble, but accidents do happen.

for all of those who wish the family or nick harm, grow up! this is a terrible situation!

Isn't this his second crash involving speed?
I'm glad he's okay and I hope the other kid is too ( I also hope the other kid sues the hell out of the Hogans fyi...)

What in the hell is the matter with some of you people!! Why are you being so f*****g mean!! Nick is a simple teenager, living a simple life, doing what most other simple teenage boys do! I KNOW for a fact that most of you judgemental people wouldn't be saying those things if it were your friend or your 17 year old son?????? Get a gut reality check before its YOU. They want prayers and support, not agony and more pain! God Bless Hogan's and Graziano's. Nick keep your chin up.

To all the one's with the negative comments, "Get off the Hater-Aid!" Not that I know any of them personally but after watching the show, I have a lot of respect for how Linda and Hogan have and continue to raise their children. I'm positive that this was a very serious and scary situation for the entire family to deal with. So, instead of posting something completely childish and ridiculous, how about just your thoughts and prayers. Who knows............it could be your car, you or your family member next......Brother!!!!!

Amazing that this family and Hulk Hogan in particular spends so much time making sure that Brooke isn't dating or showing too much skin...yet they allow their teenage son to run rampant. He has been stopped and ticketed for reckless driving numerous times before this incident. Why is a teenage boy allowed to drive Ferrari's and Vipers when he has no sense of responsibility or common sense?? When children don't have the ability or maturity to act properly..it's the parent's responsibility to crack down on them and say "no".

Due to their failure to properly parent...you now have an innocent young man in the hospital in critical condition.

I watch the TV show, and yes, Linda and Hulk (especially Linda) seem to be relatively normal, however, does anyone else see the inconsistency in parenting...where the daughter is harassed at her every move and yet the "sacred" son is allowed to cat around and do whatever he wants simply because he is a boy???

My thoughts and prayers are with the young man in the hospital. Terrible price to pay for innocently getting behind the wheel with an idiot.

I HOPE NICK FACES LEGAL CHARGES FOR HIS ACTIONS!! AND I HOPE JOHN GRAZIANO GETS WELL SOON AND LEARNS A LESSON! HE'S 22 YEARS OLD, GETTING IN A CAR WITH AN IRRESPONSIBLE 17 YEAR OLD! BOTH SHOULD LEARN A LESSON.

GRAZIANO'S BETTER MAKE SURE THE HOGAN'S/WHATEVER THEIR REAL LAST NAME IS, PAYS FOR THEIR SON'S FULL MEDICAL CARE!

18- I agree with you. Nick did not grow up in a racing atmosphere, where one is taught the ins and outs and safety of the sport. He chose to do this when wrestling didn't pan out. He may have a future in the sport, but he needs to grow up and realize that the car is not a toy. The streets are not public race tracks and he is lucky that other cars weren't dragged into this avoidable mistake.
