Nick Bollea Settles Civil Suit with Family of Injured BFF

by at . Comments

Nick Bollea may always have a guilty conscious over what transpired in a car more than two years ago, but he's now out of the legal woods with the family of John Graziano.

In 2007, Graziano was riding shotgun in Hogan's Toyota Supra when a car accident caused him "to lose a portion of his brain, to be confined to a wheelchair and to be in a minimally conscious state requiring full time care," according to court documents filed by Graziano's relatives in a civil suit.

The son of Hulk Hogan served five months in prison for the crash, following a plea of no contest to charges of felony reckless driving.

Earlier this week, meanwhile, a settlement was reached in the civil case. Terms were undisclosed.

"We reached a settlement that was agreeable to all parties," Kim Kohn, the Graziano family attorney, told E! News. "We are very happy because our goal all along was to ensure that John was provided with the appropriate care for the rest of his life. And the settlement will do that."

Graziano was released from a Florida hospital in September.
