Hulk Hogan's son Nick was seriously injured in a car accident Sunday night August 26th.
Nick Hogan, the son of famous professional wrestler Hulk Hogan, was seriously injured in a high speed car accident Sunday night August 26th.
According to the explanation obtained by TMZ it is reported that the accident occurred at around 7:31 p.m. ET on Court Street, a main drag in downtown Clearwater, causing the entire street to be shut down for hours.
Authorities said Nick was driving a Toyota Supra at a very high rate of speed when it lost control and hit a raised median. The car was flipped around and the back ended up hitting a palm tree. Sad to say that the car was completely destroyed and Nick and another male passenger were immediately flown by Medivac helicopter from the accident scene to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg.
No 911 call was made to police. The accident was actually called in by an officer who rolled up right after the accident happened. Excessive speed is likely to have played part in the crash instead of alcohol.
The official conditions of both victims were not immediately available, but Clearwater police spokesman Wayne Shelor said the injuries of both men are serious.
