Here’s a link to local news videos in Clearwater Florida where they are regularly posting updates on this Hulk Hogan son car crash story.
According to police reports, Nick Hogans car crash happened this way: The son of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan was seriously injured in a car crash Sunday night, police said.
A Toyota Supra driven by Nick Bollea 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.
Bollea and an unidentified male passenger were extricated from the car by paramedics, Shelor said. Then they were airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. Their official conditions were not immediately available, but Shelor described the injuries of both men as serious.
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, Shelor said.
Alcohol is not believed to have played a part in the crash. The crash seems to have been caused by excessive speed, Shelor said.
Hopefully, both young men involved in the Nick Hogan car crash will be alright…
Latest News Update: Second Car Involved in Nick Hogan Crash – Street Racing Suspected
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, John Graziano, seriously injured.
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 Clearwater Police Dept spokesperson said, “We suspect there may be other witnesses and we encourage them to come forward.”
As for Nick’s passenger, 22-year-old John Graziano is still in “very serious condition.” A hospital spokesperson said, “John’s condition hasn’t changed since he arrived.”
Nick Hogan Interview in Rides Magazine August Issue: “In my silver Viper, I was driving from Miami to Tampa. I got pulled over going 107 [mph] and the guy let me off. He’s like, “Hey, I know who you are, just keep going, ya know.” Dude, I got back on the road and two minutes later I get pulled over going 113 [mph]. Another highway patrol from the same county said, “I just heard on the radio that my buddy pulled you over and let you go. I’ma let you go this time. It’s your second warning. You get pulled over again, you’re probably going to go to jail.” Three minutes later, [I was] doing 123 [mph] in a 50 [mph zone]. The guy is like, “Hey, I just heard you got pulled over twice in the last 10 minutes. I got to write you a ticket.”
Latest Update on Nick’s Injured Passenger, John Graziano
As of Sept 03, John Graziano is still unconcious and in critical condition. His family and friends held a vigil on the one week anniversary of the crash. Their hopes remain high, but there has been no significant improvement in John’s condition.

“He’s too strong not to. He’s been to war and back. He’s too strong of a guy not to, he doesn’t give up, and he’s too persistent.”
Christin Carson, Graziano’s Sister
“Right now he’d be upset at all the fuss being made over him because he doesn’t like a fuss in any way, he’s an independent, strong, healthy man. The nurses say that’s what’s going to get him really rehabilitated and back to normal in no time.”
Graziano was supposed to return to Iraq in October, according to his sister. That will be delayed. His parents, brothers, and girlfriend are also with him in the hospital in intensive care.
Graziano’s sister says the Hogan family has visited the hospital, bringing food and calling in a special doctor to make sure Graziano is getting the best medical care he can.
On a sad note about the family stress involved:
“St. Petersburg Police say that Edward Graziano was arrested for violation of domestic violence injunction for protection.
Officers were called to Bayfront Medical Center on Thursday by Graziano’s wife, Debra after physical dispute erupted between her husband and other members of their family.”
