To the "Hogan Family", My prayers are with you all, and I pray that John too, is well enough to be released soon. This is a terrible thing, something that happens EVERYDAY. Hang in there, and know that you are loved by many...Nick, get well. God bless you all. (I sure wish you wouldn't read all of the negative comments. Some people are so ignorant.) Hugs to you all. Patti

I hope the boy who was critically injured gets well soon. But Nick should have his license revoked until he's 21. This isn't his first accident, and probably won't be his last. He needs a wake-up call. Next time his passenger (or another innocent bystander) may not survive.

As for that "family portrait", have you ever seen a family so over-tanned & overly bleached? Not to mention surgically enhanced? Whatever happened to aging gracefully?

i think its just awful the way these has been celebrities exploit their children . they've encouraged this, Nick and his racing. I hope this boys family sues the hell out of the Hogans. maybe they'll learn their lesson then. I'm saying a prayer for this boy and his family.

I don't blame Nick, he is a young kid that was failed by his parents. Daddy Hogan was to wrapped up in his daughters body to see his son was driving a powerful car that he couldn't handle.

This is NOT Nicks first time speeding. He was street racing. He is also awaiting a Sept court date for speeding, not just a few miles over the speed limit either.

For those of you who think Linda and Terry have done such a great job, who in hell allows a 17 year old to drive a 400 HP car! He has wrecked several other high priced, high performance cars as well, including Terry's and a borrowed Viper.

Terry, Linda, wake up before you end up burying your son.

Children should not pick up hobbies that only mature adults have the capacity to handle. With all of their money, they couldn't introduce him to a safer sport.?
Now he's bringing this to the streets where innocent people are?
Why is his friend the one so hurt?
It isn't fair!
