Wrestler and actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is certainly counting his blessings. During the week, Johnson’s mother, Ata Johnson, and cousin, Savelina Fanene, were involved in a serious head on car collision, and the superstar decided to Instagram a horrific photo from the scene to his followers.
Fortunately, no one was killed by the accident, which was caused by a drunk driver. Dwayne Johnson, who’s very close with his mother, took away a very powerful message from the accident and wanted to share it on his social networking page.
“My mom & cousin…were struck head on by a drunk driver this week – they lived,” he wrote in the post. “First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them.”

The WWE and Hercules star continued:
“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.”
His choice of hashtags are significant as well as Dwayne used: #BearHugsAndGratitude, #100PercentPreventable and #ChoicesMatter
Dwayne Johnson certainly knows about tragedy. He suffered from a few difficult situations while growing up, but recently had to grieve for the death of his friend and Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker. The actor perished in a car crash back in November. At the time, Walker was a passenger in the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT car when driver and friend Roger Rodas lost control. The car crashed into a light pole and two trees, causing the vehicle to burst into flames. In the coroner report, it was cited that Walker died due to thermal and traumatic injuries. Johnson like many of his co-stars took to Twitter to pay his respects:
As for his mother and cousin’s horrific car accident fans of the actor are already wishing his family a speedy recovery.
@TheRock hope all is well sir
