    What's the scoop on Hulk Hogan's kid drag racing and nearly killing a guy? I've been out of the look on the Hulk since Wrestlemania IV.

    (CNN) -- The teenage son of wrestling icon Hulk Hogan was discharged Monday from a Florida hospital after he slammed his Toyota Supra into a palm tree in a wreck local police called "spectacular."
    Nick Bollea, 17, was driving at a "high rate of speed" when he wrecked Sunday evening, police say.


    A representative answering the patient information line at Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg, Florida, said Nick Bollea, 17, had been discharged. Bollea is the son of Hogan, whose real name is Terrence Bollea.

    Bollea's passenger in the Sunday crash, John Graziano, 22, remained in critical condition at Bayfront on Monday afternoon, said hospital spokeswoman Nancy Waite.

    "Nick is currently at the hospital with John and his family," said Bollea's mother, Linda Hogan, in a statement. "His sole concern is for the well-being of his friend. On behalf of my family, we ask that your thoughts and prayers be with John and his loved ones."

    Nick Bollea was driving at a "high rate of speed" Sunday evening when he lost control of the yellow Supra, said Wayne Shelor, a spokesman for the Clearwater, Florida, police.

    The car "inexplicably left the roadway," jumped a median and crashed into a palm tree just east of downtown, Shelor said.

    "It destroyed the car," he said.

    Firefighters had to extract Bollea and Graziano from the wreckage. Both were flown by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center, Shelor said.
    Police shut down the mile-long Court Street, the main east-west thoroughfare through central Clearwater, as they investigated the accident, he said.

    "It was a spectacular wreck," Shelor said.

    Footage from the crash site showed Hogan speaking to paramedics and police officers and talking on a cell phone. Hogan later went to the St. Petersburg hospital, Shelor said. [​IMG]Watch Hogan on the scene with the mangled car ยป


    No charges have been filed, according to Clearwater police.
    Hogan, one of the top professional wrestlers of the 1980s and 1990s, is featured in the VH1 reality show "Hogan Knows Best." His son, wife Linda and daughter Brooke regularly appear on the show. Nick Bollea is known to viewers as "Nick Hogan."

    Way to ruin a $40,000+ car kid. Leave the drifting on the track...even there he's not very good from what I hear.

    I've done stupid things on the road before, especially when I was 17. It's just a shame that this kid very seriously hurt someone, that's the true tradegy.

    Now I hear there's talk that this divorce is shame to protect up to half of the estate, which could be attacked if there is a lawsuit that wipes them out.

    I heard a similar story in Washington State about 15 years ago. Some 21 year old kid wanted a Corvette, so his well-known Doctor father bought him one, under his (the doctor's) name. When the 21 year old got drunk and nearly wiped out a family, leaving at least one in a wheelchair for life, guess who they went after? They took everything from the Doctor, including his multi million $$ house, all his cars, everything. All becuase his kid was stupid and did a horrible thing.

    the kid that was with him had also just got back from Iraq, he survives over in the Sandbox and then rides with this moron and almost loses his life and most likely will need help for the rest of it too

    you know the kid was spoiled rotten, like having unlimited budget for go fast supra parts... and he thought he was cool, probably showing his friend how fast the car can go, and then WHAM palm tree.
