Action movie star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has taken his mother home after she was involved in a car crash. The driver of the other car has been charged with driving under the influence.
Johnson posted a picture on Instagram, showing him pushing his mother, Ata Maivia-Johnson, out of the hospital. His mother is seen in a wheelchair and a cast on her left arm.
“Takin' mama home. Banged up, but she's a tough one and will make a full recovery,” Johnson wrote in the caption. “Grateful to see her smile. And thank you guys for all the prayers, love and well wishes.”
He added the hashtags, “#GratitudeAndBearHugs #ChoicesMatter #100PercentPreventable #DontDrinkAndDrive.”
As previously reported, Maivia-Johnson and her passenger, Lina Fanene, were driving in a white Escalade Johnson gave his mother as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago. The woman who drove the other car in the crash was reportedly hospitalized and was charged with a DUI.
Johnson, who was just seen on the big screen in Hercules, chronicled the incident on Instagram, posting a photo of the totaled cars. It reveals that the drunk driver hit his mother’s car head-on and it appears that she is lucky she did not suffer worse injuries.
According to People, the crash took place on Aug. 2 in Clermont, Florida.
