CLEARWATER, Fla. - The 17-year-old son of professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and a 22-year-old man have been injured in a Clearwater, Fla., car collision.

Hogan's son, Nick Bollea, was behind the wheel of the Toyota Celica Supra Sunday and both young men had to be extracted from the crumpled vehicle, the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported Monday.

A spokeswoman for Bayfront Medical Center said Bollea is no longer listed as a patient at the facility, and he is presumed to have been released, the Tampa Tribune reported.

However, the car's passenger, John Graziano, was listed in critical condition.

Graziano's grandmother, Catherine, said he had just returned from serving with the U.S. Marines in Iraq.

She said John Graziano's father told her on the phone that her grandson may have suffered brain damage in the collision.

"He said it doesn't look good," Catherine Graziano said. "He was very incoherent."

Wayne Shelor, a Clearwater Police Department spokesman, said Bollea's car crashed into a median palm tree after skidding about 25 yards and spinning around.
