Update On Nick Hogan – Flown To Hospital & Photos Added

The following update is from TMZ.com:

Hulk Hogan’s son Nick was seriously injured in a car accident tonight in Clearwater, Fl.

Law enforcement tells TMZ the accident occurred around 7:31 p.m. ET tonight. According to police, a Toyota Supra, driven by Nick Bollea (Hogan’s real name), was traveling at a very high rate of speed when it lost control and hit a raised median. The car was flipped around and the back end hit a palm tree. The impact, we’re told, “destroyed the entire car.” The two male occupants were flown by Medivac helicopter from the accident scene to a hospital in St Petersburg. We’re told both injuries are “very very serious.”

The accident happened on Court Street, a main drag in downtown Clearwater, causing the entire street to be shut down for hours.

No 911 call was made to police. The accident was actually called in by an officer who rolled up right after the crash happened.


There are conflicting reports regarding the health of Nick Hogan. TMZ.com has reported that he was flown to a hospital by medivac. On the other hand, other reports seem to indicate that Hogan was not as seriously injured as the passenger in the vehicle:

CLEARWATER – Police are investigating a car crash on Court Street involving pro-wrester Hulk Hogan’s 17-year-old son Nick.

Witnesses say the yellow sports car was traveling at a high rate of speed before it careened out of control and hit a palm tree in the raised median of the four-lane road.

The force of the impact destroyed the Toyota Supra, and firefighters had to cut Hogan and another man from the wreckage.

Police say Hogan was the driver. He was less seriously hurt than the passenger who is in critical condition. Both men were flown to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment.

Hogan – whose real name is Nicholas Alan Bollea – is one of the stars of the reality show Hogan Knows Best.

He’s also a professional driver and is signed with Dodge on the professional drift circuit. He got his Formula Drift license.

People at the scene have sent in a few photos from the accident. You can view those here.
