Nick Hogan in Serious Car Accident.

CNN) -- A high-speed car accident in Florida has left the teenage son of wrestling star Hulk Hogan seriously injured and a companion in critical condition late Sunday, police said.


TV footage shows a person injured in Nick Hogan's car crash being treated in an ambulance.

Nick Bollea, 17, was the driver of a Toyota Supra that went out of control while driving at a "high rate of speed" about 7:30 p.m. Sunday, said Wayne Shelor, a spokesman for the Clearwater police in Clearwater, Florida.

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

"It destroyed the car," he said.

Firefighters had to extract Bollea and his passenger, whose identity was not immediately released, from the wreckage. Both were flown to a hospital in nearby St. Petersburg, Florida, Shelor said.

"They're both down there. Nick's father is down there," he said. Watch Hulk Hogan on the scene with the mangled car

Hulk Hogan, one of the top professional wrestlers of the 1980s and 1990s, is now featured in the VH1 reality show "Hogan Knows Best." His son, wife Linda and daughter Brooke regularly appear on the show.

One episode documented the son's interest in a type of high-speed car racing known as "drifting."

Shelor said there was no evidence of drag racing or "drifting" in Sunday's wreck.

Police said Bollea -- known to viewers as "Nick Hogan" -- was not as seriously hurt as his passenger, who was listed as critical.


Shelor said the wreck forced police to shut down mile-long Court Street, the main east-west road through central Clearwater, as they investigated the accident.

"I will have this road closed for a minimum of four hours," he said. "It was a spectacular wreck." E-mail to a friend

Just saw this while searching for news on Owen Wilson.

I like Nick on Hogan know's best. He's a practical joker, and pretty funny.

TMZ has pics:

I find it absolutely bizarre that the back end is completely f'd up and the front end looks perfectly fine.

He is prominently featured on a current tv show, so it's not like he isn't a public figure at all.

Though it is "reality" tv so it is a dubious form of fame

I really hope he is OK. He seems pretty cool on the show and relatively down-to-earth for a rich celebrity child.

Hope the best for the family.

Do a Google for car accidents/crashes and you'll get all kinds of stuff. If you only watch Cable News, you'll get the sensational shit. Cable/Television News is entertainment news.

According to a few sources, he is dead.
He had a stroke.

I'll try to dig up more info. Wikipedia is also reporting he has died (yeah, I know, not the best source)

(Take all this with a grain of salt). I imagine with hs age they won't release much info on it anyway.

I expect Hulk to return to the scene of the accident in a day or two to give the tree his son hit the Big Boot for not jobbing.

The 6:30 Chicago ABC News said he is in critical condition. The passenger was seriously injured.

Clearly not a case of the irresistible force meeting the immovable object.

kids should not be allowed to drive cars like this, cuz this is inevitably going to happen. too bad. kid seemed like he was doing alright, not a "hey my dad is hulk hogan so fuck you" type of kid, wish them the best.

can't believe a palm tree caused that kind of damage, they must be strong as hell.

and I must say, since they were relevant when I was young I do enjoy both of their shows, kinda guilty pleasure reality shows for me.
