Rock’s Mom and Cousin In Car Wreck
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s mother Ata and his NXT developmental Diva cousin Lina Fanene, were involved in a car accident on August 1st. Rock wrote on Instagram:
My mom & cousin @linafanene were struck head on by a drunk driver this week – they lived. 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.
The drunk driver was a female with a suspended license who was speeding away from police at the time. Lina suffered a broken collarbone, while Ata damaged her wrist and had bad bruising.
