Hulk Hogan's son extricated from car by paramedics

The son of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan was seriously injured in a car crash in Clearwater, Fla., Sunday night, police said.

A Toyota Supra driven by Nick Bollea was traveling at a high rate of speed at aroun 7:30 p.m., 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 a male passenger identified as John J. Graziano were extricated from the car by paramedics, Shelor said. Then they were airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. Bollea was released from the hospital Monday; Graziano remained in critical condition.

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.

Bollea appears on the reality TV show "Hogan Knows Best" with his father, mother and sister.
