Cops: Second Car Involved in Hogan Crash

8/29/2007 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Florida police have interviewed the driver of a silver Dodge Viper that may have contributed to Nick Hogan's horrific late night crash earlier this week, that left Nick's friend seriously injured.
Nick Hogan, Dodge Viper
Sources tell TMZ that several witnesses can place the Viper near the crash scene moments before and after the collision, but it may not be the only vehicle involved.

A rep for Clearwater Police Dept. tells TMZ, "We suspect there may be other witnesses and we encourage them to come forward."

Nick's father, Hulk Hogan, happens to own a silver Viper, but cops made it very clear that the wrestler is not a suspect.

As for Nick's passenger, TMZ has learned that 22-year-old John Graziano is still in "very serious condition." Sources inside the hospital tell us, "John's condition hasn't changed since he arrived."

Who cares if you're first if you don't have anything to say? Idiot.

If it was the Hulk's Viper, that would explain how he was on the scene so quickly.

This is getting more and more ridiculous! The rumor I heard on the radio on the way to work this morning was that he was racing this so called viper. Either way its a shame, and it seems like this could have been prevented- by someone, be it either his parents, or the state/law if they had taken his license away from him after the other numerous speeding offenses. If this "friend" of his dies will he be charged? He was knowingly speeding and he should have to pay the consecuences for that.

as soon as they mentioned the sraightaway down court I knew he was racing. But all the danger is really kind of attractive on him, he's growing up quite nicely. i am praying for a healthy recovery for John Graziano. GODSPEED GODSPEED GODSPEED GODSPEED

Face it, Nick is a bit feeble minded. He couldn't even graduate high school in Florida. His driving record shows he is not capable of making prudent decisions. What are Mr. & Mrs. Hulk gonna do with Nicky Retardo is a valid question.

#8 - I lived in the Tampa Bay area for 8 years, and I don't recall seeing too many Vipers. Do you live there?

What a terrible WAKE UP CALL!!! I guess when Hulk took Nick to watch those grusome videos of what could happen it just didn't sink in. It's a shame that a war veteran had to be the example!

If it was Hulk, that would explain how he was on the scene so quickly. If it wasn't, its a bit curios that he got to the scene so quickly. I'm sure there were other cars involved. These drag racing wannabe idiots think its cool to soup up their Toyotas and then take them drag racing on public streets. The police have to take Nick's licence away before he kills someone. And his parents should assume some responsiblity. C'mon a 17 year old with a driving record bigger than most 40 year olds? he's only been a licensed driver for a year!! Why would his parents allow him to drive such a car with his record?
