London, Feb 20 (Calcutta Tube) Celebrity wrestler Hulk Hogan has settled a negligence lawsuit over a 2007 car crash involving his son Nick Bollea. The accident left 19-year-old John Graziano with permanent brain damage. Nick completed 166 days of an eight-month prison sentence in 2008.
Nick pleaded no contest to reckless driving for his part in the high-speed collision in Clearwater, Florida, which left passenger Graziano with a skull fracture, contactmusic.com reports.
Graziano’s family filed an auto negligence civil lawsuit against Nick and his family along with a friend Daniel Jacob in March, alleging they were negligent in their actions, which led to Graziano’s injuries.
An attorney for the Graziano family announced the settlement Friday but did not disclose its terms.
Graziano was under doctors’ care at the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa, Florida. He was discharged September last year and allowed to go home, but is still in need of 24-hour care.
