Hulk Hogan's Teen Son Released from Florida Hospital After Car Crash

UPDATE: CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Hulk Hogan's son was released from the hospital Monday, a day after a car crash that critically injured his passenger, authorities said.

A Toyota Supra driven by Hogan's 17-year-old son, Nick Bollea, was traveling at a high rate of speed at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Clearwater Police spokesman Wayne Shelor said. Bollea lost control and hit a raised median. The car flipped around, and the back end hit a palm tree.

Police identified Bollea's passenger as 22-year-old John J. Graziano of Dunedin. He remained in critical condition Monday at Bayfront Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said.

"Nick is currently at the hospital with John and his family," Bollea's mother, Linda Hogan, said 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."

The crash occurred on SR 60, which is a main drag through downtown Clearwater.

"It's clear from the scene and other factors that excessive speed ... was a factor in the crash," Shelor said Monday. He said the investigation was continuing.

Bollea appears on VH1's "Hogan Knows Best" with his professional wrestler-father, his mother and sister.
