Wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan and his family are facing legal action from the family of John Graziano, who was left seriously injured after a 2007 car crash.
Graziano’s parents are suing Hogan and his estranged wife for failing to prevent the car crash. The wrestler’s son, Nick Bollea, was driving his father’s car at the time of the accident.
Bollea, 17, had his driving license suspended for a year in November after Florida officials deemed him a dangerous driver, following an August accident that left his friend Graziano needing nursing care for the rest of his life.
Bollea has also been charged with reckless driving involving serious bodily injury and will be tried as an adult when his case reaches court next month.
According to court papers, filed on Monday in Pinellas County, Florida, the Grazianos accuse the Bollea family of being directly liable for the accident.
