Hogan had reportedly been driving with a friend when they stopped to respond to the accident, with Hogan helping the teen driver get out of her car by popping the car’s airbags with tools he had on hand.
According to TMZ, the driver was a 17-year-old girl who had attempted to cross lanes to make an exit she was about to miss but managed to clip another car in the process before completely flipping over.
Hogan, and his friend, Jake Rask, who is believed to be a marine, leapt into action to rescue the teen.
Hogan’s new wife, yoga instructor Sky Daily, praised her husband’s quick action on Facebook.
“Last night, after we left dinner in Tampa, we saw a car flip in front of us! I truly admire my husband @hulkhogan and our good buddy @jakerask for springing into action, puncturing the girls airbag, and getting her quickly out of the car,” read Daily’s post, shared by TMZ. “By all appearances, she was unscathed, just really rattled, which is an absolute miracle!”
According to NBC, Tampa Police Department said there were only minor injuries as a result of the crash.
Social media users have since praised Hogan for his quick thinking.
“Imagine getting rescued by the Hulkster! So rad. God Bless you!” one user wrote.
