Brooke Hogan: Seatbelt Saved My Life
Hulk Hogan's daughter says buckling up kept her safe during a "horrible car accident" on Sunday
The Hogan family was involved in another car accident Sunday, when Hulk Hogan’s daughter Brooke’s car was hit and pushed into a concrete wall by a man witnesses said was speeding.
No injuries were reported to either Brooke Bollea, 20, her female passenger, or to the 19-year-old man in the car that hit Bollea’s on the Bayside Bridge in Clearwater, Fla., according to a release from the Florida Highway Patrol. No charges have been filed in the accident.
Bollea’s 2008 four-door Mercedes had $3,000 damage done to it, according to the release.
A rep for the Hogan family had no comment.
Bollea credited the use of seatbelts for keeping her and her passenger uninjured.
“I don’t know if you heard, but my friend and I got into a really bad car accident today ourselves . . . As I turned on my car I clicked my seatbelt. As we pulled out onto the road, I looked over and realized my friend didn’t have her seatbelt on. I reminded her to put it on and the minute she clicked it, a car crashed into us,” Boella wrote in a MySpace post. “It was a horrible car accident, one that most would be severely hurt in, but we had our seatbelts on and they kept us in tight.”
The friend, who calls herself lala on her Myspace page, posted the following: “..Brooke Hogans my hero, thank you for saving my life! Everyone wear your seat belts.”
Brooke made reference to the accident her brother Nick was in last August, which left his friend John Graziano critically injured. Nick Bollea, 17, was sentenced to eight months in jail earlier this month after pleading no contest to charges of felony reckless driving in connection to that crash.
Hulk Hogan (real name: Terry Bollea) and Brooke’s mom Linda were both spotted Sunday at the scene of Brooke’s accident.
The accident was first reported by the St. Petersburg Times.
