Clearwater, Florida -  Hulk Hogan was on the scene Sunday night after a crash involving his son and another man. Clearwater police say Hogan's son, whose real name is Nick Bollea, lost control of his Toyota Supra around 7:30 p.m.

Clearwater Police said Nick's injuries are non-life threatening.  Today, he's at home recovering.

Bollea and another male passenger were extricated from the car by paramedics and airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg.

Clearwater Police say his passenger, 22-year-old John Graziano of Dunedin, is in critical condition.

Witnesses say the Supra was racing a silver Dodge Viper at the time, but police say it's too early to know for sure what led to the crash.

No charges have been filed.

A Clearwater police sergeant heard the crash and was the first to respond to the scene.  Paramedics in the area arrived just minutes later.

Court Street remained closed to all traffic until 12:30 a.m

Nick is 17 years old. He is part of  his father's reality show "Hogan Knows Best."  The family recently moved back to Clearwater from South Florida.

On Monday afternoon, Nick's mother, Linda Hogan, released the following statement:

Linda Hogan
"My son Nick and a friend were involved in a car accident last night. Nick suffered minor injuries and has been treated and released from the hospital. At this time, his friend, John Graziano remains hospitalized. Nick is currently at the hospital with John and his family. His sole concern is for the well being of his friend. On behalf of my family, we ask that your thoughts and prayers be with John and his loved ones."
