A driver who crashed into a 2012 Cadillac Escalade carrying Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's mother and cousin on August 2 reportedly has been charged with DUI following the accident. The Rock's mother Ata Naivia-Johnson and his cousin WWE NXT Diva Lina Fanene were on the way home from a fundraising event when the crash took place in Clermont, Florida. Fanene was hospitalized for three days.
A new report by TMZ suggests that the alleged drunk woman had tried to avoid police and run through a red light just before the head-on collision. According to the Lake County Sheriff's Department, an officer chased the car after it ran through the red light. The crash took place only minutes after.
The "Pain and Gain" actor took to Twitter to share a photo of the wrecked car and told his followers that accident caused by drunk driving was preventable. "My mom and cousin were hit head on by a drunk driver. They lived. This was 100% preventable. #ChoicesMatter," he wrote.
He additionally wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram. "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. #BearHugsAndGratitude #100PercentPreventable #ChoicesMatter," he said in the post.
