Nick Bollea Seriously Injured in Car Crash

by at .

You might know him as Nick Bollea or Nick Hogan. Or as the brother of Brooke Hogan.

Either way, the son of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan was seriously injured in a car accident last night.

A Toyota Supra driven by Nick was traveling at a high rate of speed at approximately 7:30 p.m., Clearwater Police spokesman Wayne Shelor said. Bollea, which is Hogan's real name, lost control and hit a raised median.

The car flipped around, and the back end hit a palm tree.

"The car was destroyed," Shelor said.

Radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge, a friend of the family, released the following statement:

"Hulk's son Nick and a friend named John were involved in a pretty bad car crash today... I can't get into details... but I can tell you this: Nick left the hospital with me when we were leaving and is headed home to rest, he is ok."

Bollea and his pal were extricated from the car by paramedics, Shelor said. Then they were airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. The crash occurred on State Route 60, a main drag through downtown Clearwater. The road had to be shut down in both directions for several hours.

Unlike the accidents involving Lane Garrison or Lindsay Lohan, alcohol is not believed to have played a part in the crash. It seems to have been caused by excessive speed, Shelor said.
