Former WWE and sex tape superstar Hulk Hogan reportedly helped save a teenager’s life Sunday night after her car flipped on the highway due to being clipped by another vehicle on the Veterans Expressway, heading towards Clearwater, Fla.

Hogan, with his wife, Sky Daily and his friend Jake Rask, were among the first responders on the scene. Rask and Hogan, according to TMZ, had to pop the airbags of the car to get the teenager out safely. Hogan posted on X that he had to use a ballpoint pen.

“Last night, after we left dinner in Tampa, we saw a car flip in front of us!” Daily posted on Facebook. “I truly admire my husband @hulkhogan and our good buddy @jakerask for springing into action, puncturing the girl’s airbag, and getting her quickly out of the car. By all appearances, she was unscathed, just really rattled, which is an absolute miracle!”

Deadspin reached out to the Florida Highway Patrol for more information regarding the crash and have not received a reply.

Hogan was a professional wrestler from 1977-2012. He is a six-time WWE champion and has been inducted into the WWE hall of fame twice. He has also found success as an actor following his wrestling career.

In 2013, Hogan sued Gawker Media (which owned Deadspin at the time) after the sire posted clips of a sex tape involving Hogan and his friend’s wife. Hogan said that he was unaware he was being filmed during the encounter and that the posting of the video left him humiliated. The jury ruled in his favor and he was awarded $140 million in damages, but eventually settled on $31 million. Two months later, Gawker filed for bankruptcy.
