I am still surprised that parents still buy thier teenage kids with minimal driving experience and tons of “show off” hormones those crazy fast expensive cars that can get the kids killed.Linda Hogan has just released the following statement to “Extra” about her son Nick’s dangerous Sunday crash:“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.
On behalf of my family, we ask that your thoughts and prayers be with John and his loved ones.”
In addition, “Extra” has obtained a statement from Jim Liaw, president and co-founder of the Formula Drift series:
“Nick is a licensed Formula Drift driver but he has only competed in one Formula Drift competition all year…Formula Drift also holds its licensed drivers to the utmost professional standards and conduct at or away from our competitions.
Formula Drift is withholding any judgment at this time because we do not have all the facts of this matter.
At this time we send our best wishes and support to the Nick, his passenger and their family and friends.”
some of the comments go like this…
This is just another sad and disgusting display of how people with money raise spoiled brats. What is a 17 year old KID doing with a racing car that is capable of driving 200mph?!!Nick has admitted getting pulled over by police several times…(even 3 times in one day!) for going over 120 miles per hour. If a parent allows their CHILD to drive around on suburban streets in a car like that, they better be damn sure the child is responsible enough NOT to speed. I feel so horrible that his friend will now pay for the rest of his life. I dont blame Nick….he is acting like the 17 year old spoiled child he is. I blame Hulk and Linda for allowing such behavior…especially since they were aware of his speeding record. My heart goes out to that poor innocent child who will now be the victim for the rest of his life…
I know from a few of my friends that getting a 17 year old a really fast car as thier graduation present in never a good idea. My friend got his son a BMW sportscar for his 18th B-day… that kid wrecked it in 2 weeks. My parents did the smart thing, I got the 1977 Ford Granada that I worked and McDonalds to buy for 300 bucks. hat thing was lucky to make it to the speed limit!
I know parents can be suckers and get the kid things they always wanted at thier age… but its normally a mistake.
