Nick Hogan is not completely save from the deadly car accident, literally. The young man, who only suffered minor injuries and already discharged from the hospital on Monday August 27th, is due in a St. Petersburg court on September 10th later this year for the related incident.
Speaking on the accident, it appears that Nick has the tendencies of speeding. He is a professional driver and belongs to a drift team, a style of driving that features skidding and doing burnouts. Friends say he's devoted to the sport.
Apparently, his near fatal car crash on Sunday August 26th was not the first time he's been involved in a major vehicular incident. He had a yellow Lamborghini he was driving burst into flames back in September last year, which the authorities simply labeled as "normal car fire."
Police are still investigating what caused the Sunday crash but have an idea as to what happened. "You have a 17-year-old with a powerful car, and it seems that he apparently lost control at a high speed," police spokesman Wayne Shelor said in a statement.
If only gossip Website Perezhilton is to be believed, Nick "was caught speeding earlier this month in Florida. He was going 82 in a 45 mph zone (at 10:30 AM). Worse, he was speeding in a construction zone with workers present."
Nick will surely face serious consequences should he proven guilty in the Sunday crash.
