Dwayne Johnson’s Mom Survives Scary L.A. Car Crash
Dwayne Johnson says “angels of mercy watched over” his mother Ata Johnson early Thursday morning when she was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles.
Posting a photo of her mom’s red Cadillac SUV on Instagram on Thursday, the “Black Adam” and “Red Notice” star said, “Thank god she’s fine.”
“She will survive and continue to be tested,” the superstar wrote of her 74-year-old mother. “This woman survived lung cancer, a difficult marriage, a head-on collision with a drunk driver and a suicide attempt. She’s a survivor, in a way that makes angels and miracles real.
The Rock, 50, thanked the Los Angeles Police and Fire Department “for being so caring and focused” and “staying on the phone and talking to me through it all.”
Representatives for the “Fast & Furious 6” star did not immediately respond Friday to The Times’ request for additional comment. The LAPD and Los Angeles Fire Department did not release any additional information about the wreckage.
“I have one relative left, so if you still have your mom and dad, make sure you hug them tight, because you never know when you’ll get that 3 a.m. call that we never want to get. “, added the beloved star.
In March, Johnson told The Associated Press that he was raised primarily by his mother. Although he also had a relationship with his father – professional wrestler Rocky Johnson, who died in 2020 – the ‘Moana’ star said his mother and grandmother ‘have a very clear agenda on how to m raise and what lessons I should be taught and what kind of integrity I should have as a little boy growing up.
“My grandmother, my mother. My first wife, Dany Garcia, who is now a longtime business partner, my wife today, Lauren, my three daughters continue to influence and teach me on a daily basis,” he added. “Even my little ones. I have a 6 year old and a 3 year old, and when you are open and docile you would be surprised as a man how much your daughters will teach you.
“I’m a completely different man than I was 20 years ago,” he said. “I had a professional wrestling career that was on fire. The things that you thought were important and should be sweating maybe 10, 15 years ago are so meaningless, in fact. The most important things are literally in front of you [like family].”
In June, the former WWE star surprised his mother with another new home.
