Hulk Hogan's Son Released From Hospital

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. on 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.

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 is continuing.

According to Bollea was ticketed earlier this month by Pinellas Park police for doing 82 mph in a 45 mph construction zone. Police also cited him for not wearing a seat belt. The wrestler's son is due to appear in court on Sept. 10 for that charge.

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