LATEST: Hulk Hogan's daughter BROOKE has credited her jailed brother NICK for inadvertently saving her life during a car crash in Florida on Sunday (25May08).
Hogan - real name Brooke Bollea - was driving across the Bayside Bridge in Clearwater, Florida, with a friend when her vehicle was involved in a collision with several other cars.
No one has been reported injured after the smash, which is said to have occurred when Bollea's Mercedes hit the back end of another car, according to
Both Hulk Hogan - real name Terry Bollea - and his estranged wife Linda, rushed to the crash site to tend to their 20-year-old daughter.
And Bollea insists she only escaped unscathed because she fastened her seatbelt - and her brother's horrific car crash last year (07) serves as a constant reminder for her to buckle up.
Nick, 17, is currently serving an eight month jail sentence after pleading no contest to felony reckless driving following the crash in Clearwater, Florida, which left his friend John Graziano critically injured.
Bollea writes on her Myspace internet page, "I truly believe my brother and John saved My life and my best friends life.... 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. I reminded (my friend) to put it on and the minute she clicked it, a car crashed into us. 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. I have to thank my brother and my best friend John for teaching me an important lesson that saved our lives."
