Most Shocking Headlines: Nick Hogan's Car Accident

Most Shocking Headlines: Nick Hogan's Car Accident

We've been counting down the most shocking headlines of 2007, and we'll be revealing one more each day through December 21. We hope you enjoy this look back at some of the posts and stories that we certainly weren't expecting to see.

While most of this year for Hulk Hogan and his family consisted of another season for Hogan Knows Best and Brooke's near constant inclusion on worst dressed lists, in late August the family suffered a tragedy, changing their year and lives irreparably. Nick Hogan was the driver in a serious car accident that left his passenger and good friend, John Graziano, in a vegetative state. Details quickly emerged that he was allegedly involved in a street race at the time and had a pretty terrible record of traffic (and whoa, speeding) violations. Nick's license was suspended and he was eventually arrested, but that is the least of his worries as Graziano, an Iraq war vet, remains in the hospital and is not expected to recover. There are also stories that underage Nick had been drinking before getting behind the wheel that fateful day. The stress of the tragedy proved to be too much for the family, and in late November Linda Hogan filed for divorce from Hulk after over 20 years of marriage. Hulk recently said he feels hopeful about both situations. I'm sure that he hopes 2008 and his premiere as the host of American Gladiators is a new beginning in more ways than one. As we look back on this story, our thoughts go out to the Graziano family.

I hope that Nick does have to serve jail time--I don't think that he should get leniency because of his "celebrity" status. It's unfortunate that his poor judgement caused such a horrible thing to happen to another person, and a friend, no less.

It wasnt shocking to me, it was expected if you ever watched the show and saw how he drove. He needs to go to jail

The shocking part of this is that they both made it out alive. I've seen cars that look a little better than this with people who have not survived. Pretty amazing. I reallly hope he goes to jail for what he did though. And his family(or he should) damn well better pay for his poor friend's hospital bills for as long as he is there.

*Alisha_Stiletto* comments are sooo right. I completely agree. I don't care who his parents are or how much money they have. Nick WILL but we WON'T forget what happened to that other boy in the car.

I agree, Alisha_Stiletto. And what irked me the most about the whole thing is the statement that Nick's lawyer made about how unfortunate it was that Graziano wasn't wearing a seatbelt. Yes, he should have been, but I think Nick holds a lot of responsibility for what happened and he needs to own up to it and deal with the consequences.

Nick needs jail. They need to press charges on his sorry ass. End of story.
