Nick Hogan’s Crash Victim — Brother Critically Injured in Car Accident

It”s one of the grisliest coincidences ever — 5 years after Nick Hogan nearly killed his passenger in a car accident … the passenger”s brother is now in critical condition, after getting into a near-fatal car wreck himself. 

In case you forgot … Nick Hogan was racing his sports car in Florida back in 2007, when he lost control and crashed into a tree.  His passenger, John Graziano, is expected to spend the rest of his life in a vegetative state.

Now John”s brother Michael Graziano suffered an eerily similar fate — getting into a serious car accident … in which he was also the passenger.  Even worse … Michael was NOT wearing a seatbelt, just like his brother John.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the car Graziano was riding in — a 1994 Volvo — slammed into the back of a dump truck at 2:30 a.m.

Graziano was rushed to Bayfront Medical Center where he is currently in critical condition. The car”s driver was also taken to Bayfront, though his injuries aren”t believed to be life-threatening.
