Hogan Family

Vehicular Lunatics?

11/20/2007 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Hogan family has come out strongly against street racing since Nick's brutal crash -- but just two years ago, another Hogan was screaming its virtues!

ABCActionNews.com out of Tampa Bay, Florida has uncovered video from 2005, showing mom Linda Hogan drag racing another vehicle, with daughter Brooke in the passenger seat. The video, from a documentary called "Vehicular Lunatics," also shows Linda boasting, "I love it. The rush, the speed on the road ... racing in between all the cars, dodging the cops. It's awesome."

The Hogan family maintains that speed was not a factor in Nick's car crash. The victim of the crash, John Graziano, remains in a coma.

fame ho    

Since this young man was hero and a veteran..and moved to a VA Hospital, are we the taxpayers paying for his coma healthcares services from a car accident caused by a young punk Hogan? Since the Hogans boast of thier fame and wealth, should they be paying for the healthcare of this young man? It is time we start a protest to get their stupid show off TV, these people are disgustingly gross to continue doing a TV after what has happened..

See this video: http://video.aol.com/video-detail/hulk-hogan-and-nick-hogan--nopi-drift-competition/1751442173 about 3/4 of the way through it, Hulk is talking about Nick building his first car at 16 and practicing drifting it in their neighborhood and not making the neighbors too happy.

Steph: You're so very, very, very wrong. No, it couldn't have been any one of us. Not everyone is willing to endanger others for thrills. In fact, the overwhelming majority wouldn't be so selfish and careless. We're not talking about going a *few* miles over the limit, rather *RACING* on public roads...repeatedly. The whole family should be locked up, complete idiots! Oh, and it was a *crash*, not an accident. An accident is unexpected/unforeseen. Racing on public roads is an obvious risk, and therefore crashing is neither of those. Plus, he had been drinking...drunk or not.

Hey - Steph - that slob never even said he was sorry! John is to blame? Nick was drunk - but they aren't telling that part - he is underage to drink - and the bar will get busted. Isn't it a shame? Yes - have your opinion - but PLEASE - get the facts right!!!! Maybe he didn't intend to "hurt his best friend" but his actions were otherwise. why would he put himself and his friend in harm's way? Didn't mean to, but hey - things happen? NO WE MAKE THEM HAPPEN THROUGH STUPIDITY!!!

Dog is a racist mutt!    

Yeah steph, I never killed or caused permanent brain damage to anyone ever! Try as you might, you are still an idiot and just watch as you are ripped into shreds for being such a fool! You must be a HUGE Hogan fan! Go back to watching those 'real' episodes of the soap opera known as the WWE! I hope you aren't allowed to drive on the streets with the rest of us, because it is quit obvious that you don't care one iota about anyone but yourself. I've also seen people his age tried, convicted and EXECUTED for crimes being committed at that age, so that argument won't fly either. He knew better and just like you, he didn't care until he was FORCED TO!

" It was an unfortunate accident " " this could be anyone of us ".

No your wrong Steph, It could NOT be anyone of us, It could never be me.
I dont street race nor did my parents buy me a high performance sports car because I was born.
Nicks " accident " as you choose to call it was 100 percent preventable.

And if not a passenger, then how long would it have been until he ran over a baby stroller in his neighborhood, or some innocent victim just driving their car? Good ol' Hulkamania was bound to run wild over someone! And now that he is going to be cared for by a crumbling and overtaxed V.A., I have little hope that he will be receiving the greatest of care either. Nick should go to jail for a Long Time while his dad pays for all the medical expenses for the rest of his life- if you can call being in a vegetative state much of a life. 'steph' still thinks this is quite ok though. Just a mere 'accident' that left an entire family ruined for the rest of their lives and she is too stupid to even figure this out! I bet she still has his poster over her bed in her parent's house.

The Hogan's denie speed had anything to do wtih Johns injurys which is like saying the pope had nothing to do with religion.
What a ignorant self destructive statement to send out!

Give it some time people....this family is in for one of the harshest
legal wake up calls in the universe...and they will deny it and refuse to see it coming.
That is what will make it all the more sweet. They don't know they don't know.

Steph your comments are rediculous. No one accelerates from 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds on a wet street in a high performance vehicle accidently. The Hogans are completely irresponsible on how they behave in public, and as many people have pointed out need to be held liable for their actions. Please let us know what city you live in and what car you drive, that way if I see you in my rear view mirror I will happily get out of your way.
