On Friday, professional wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan settled a lawsuit with the family of John Graziano, who was critically injured in an automobile accident caused by the television personality’s son Nick.
In 2007, the 25-year-old Graziano was a passenger in Hogan’s Toyota Supra when the 19-year-old reality TV star lost control of the vehicle, smashing into a nearby palm tree. While Nick was left with minor injuries, Graziano, who is an Iraq war veteran, sustained severe brain injuries, leaving him in a minimally-conscious state and requiring full-time care.
Last year, the younger Hogan pleaded no contest to felony reckless driving involving great bodily harm. He was eventually sentenced to eight months in prison, but only served five.
Exact terms of the financial settlement were not released, although the victim’s family said it will take millions to care for him over the years, according to the Associated Press.
“We are very happy because our goal all along was to ensure that John was provided with the appropriate care for the rest of his life,” Graziano’s family attorney Kim Kohn told Entertainment News. “And the settlement will do that.”
