John Graziano Head Wound

This video is pretty disturbing!

It shows John Graziano, a 23 year old former US Marine who was in a terrible car accident in Florida in 2008. Nick Bollea, 17, son of Terrance "Hulk Hogan" Bollea, was drunk and driving his father's car with Graziano as a passenger when he lost control and hit a raised median, spinning the car around and causing it to hit a palm tree. Graziano was terribly injured in the accident, and from the looks of this incredible video, it looks like he lost a lot of the front part of his brain.

Attorneys for Graziano (Who contacted the attorneys?) filed papers last year in Pinellas County Court accusing Terrance Bollea, his estranged wife Linda, their son Nick Bollea and family friend Daniel Jacobs of three counts of negligence, seeking unknown damages, in the horrific injury that Graziano suffered. Apparently the adults allowed Nick Bollea to consume alcohol at their home and then gave him the keys to the 1998 Toyota Supra that crashed later on.

Graziano is expected to need remedial care in nursing homes for the rest of his life. His intellectual powers appear severely diminished, and for all intents and purposes, he's a wide-awake vegetable. It's hard to believe you can stay alive when you are missing that much of your brain.

I feel so bad for this guy. I hope his parents get some money out of this.

But let's put things in a more personal scope.

Because in all honesty, at one point or another, 99.9% of all people have at some time in their life either driven drunk or high, and most of these people do not get in accidents by stroke of luck. That is for readers who look at the story with a sense of self-righteousness.
