The Rock’s Mother Survived a Car Crash and He Posted Pictures of It

Says they were hit "head on by a drunk driver"

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson posted an image of the car wreck that nearly killed his mother and cousin to Instagram on Sunday. The wrestler-turned-actor also tweeted about the incident, saying his family had been hit “head on by a drunk driver.”

The picture, above, included the caption, “My mom & cousin @linafanene were struck head on by a drunk driver this week – they lived. First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them. But then you realize the most important thing is my family lived thru this and we can hug each other that much tighter these days. Hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them.”

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Johnson’s cousin, WWE NXT Diva Lina Fanene, or his mother, Ata Johnson, sustained any injuries in the accident.
