Dwayne Johnson's Mother and Cousin Struck by Drunk Driver

Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is feeling thankful days after his mom and cousin survived a horrific car accident.

Johnson, 42, revealed on Sunday that his mother, Ata Johnson, and his cousin, WWE Diva Savelina “Lina” Fanene, were hit head-on by a drunk driver earlier this week when he posted a grisly photo from the accident on Instagram Sunday. Thankfully, both survived the wreck.

“First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them,” Johnson wrote in the caption. “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.”

The wrestler-turned-movie star ended his post with the hashtags “#BearHugsAndGratitude, #100PercentPreventable #ChoicesMatter.”
