The U.S. Marine critically injured in a summer (07) car crash involving Hulk Hogan's son NICK is showing small signs of improvement in hospital. Nick Bollea, 17, had his driving licence suspended for a year last month (Nov07) after Florida officials deemed him a dangerous driver, following an August (07) accident that left his friend Graziano needing nursing care for the rest of his life. Now Graziano's mother Debra has revealed her 22-year-old son is semi-conscious, can open his eyes, and he recently leaned away from her when she tried to touch his face. However, she says Graziano has still not spoken and can't breathe without the help of a machine. Meanwhile, Bollea has been charged with reckless driving involving serious bodily injury and will be tried as an adult when his case reaches court.
