Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has revealed his mother, Ata, was in a car crash.
Johnson, 50, shared a distressing image of his mother’s crushed car, assuring fans that his 74-year-old mum would “survive”.
“Thank you, God, she’s OK,” he wrote. “Angels of mercy watched over my mom as she was in a car crash late last night.”

The Fast & Furious star continued: “She’ll survive and continue to get evaluated. This woman has survived lung cancer, tough marriage, head-on collision with a drunk driver and attempted suicide.
“She’s a survivor, in ways that make angels and miracles real.”
TMZ reports that Ata battled stage three lung cancer in 2010, and just four years later in 2014, survived a head-on collision after she was struck head-on by a drunk driver.
“Thank you LAPD & LAFD for being so caring & focused,” Johnson continued. “Thanks for staying on [the] phone and talking me thru it all. I got one parent left, so if you still got your mom and dad make sure you hug ’em hard, cos you never know when you’ll get that 3am call we never want to get.”

The news shocked fans more so, given Johnson often features his mother on his Instagram. Last year, he famously celebrated buying her a luxury home.
In June last year, Johnson surprised his mother with the home, which took him and a team of designers eight weeks to prepare. He shared her tearful reaction to Instagram.
”Love you mom and surprise!” Johnson wrote alongside the video. “I’ve been lucky enough to have bought her a few homes over the years, but this one is special as she’s told me over and over these past few years, ‘After a lifetime of travelling, I want this home to be my last. That’s my dream,'” Johnson explained.
He signed off his message by writing, “Mom, there’s no greater feeling than to make you happy ~ welcome home.
“I always say, if you got a good mom then you got a shot at becoming a good, caring human being. Let’s all give our mamas a big grateful squeeze this weekend and make ’em happy.”
