The Rock's Mom

Car Smashed by Drunk Driver

in Head on Collision

8/10/2014 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0810-the-rock-car-crash-instagram-01The Rock says his mom, Ata Maivia-Johnson and his cousin were struck HEAD ON by a drunk driver this week ... and luckily, they survived.

Dwayne Johnson's uncle Afa tells us Ata and Lina Fanene were driving home from a fundraiser their family runs every year -- the Usos Foundation Banquet -- when they were crashed into by the alleged drunk driver.

Both women were rushed to a local hospital and we're told Ata was hospitalized for 3 nights. Afa wouldn't say what injuries the 65-year-old sustained ... but he did tell us it was a very scary scene.

The Rock posted a picture of the crash and his mom's white Escalade -- the one he bought her for Christmas in 2012 -- clearly totaled. Same goes for the other car involved.

Fanene -- who currently works for WWE's NXT division -- posted a photo of the actor/wrestler visiting her in the hospital.

Ata and Lina also posed for a pic in the SUV on August 2nd on their way to the fundraiser.

The Rock tweeted, "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."

Dear god. Glad they made it out of this ok. They outta be thanking their lucky stars, most head on collisions I've ever seen on the news and such, there's usually always at least 1 fatality.

There's a problem here    

I was never a big fan of The Rock, just sort of neutral about him but back in the day I saw him in an airport and every time a kid said hi to him or asked for an autograph he stopped for a moment, so that's okay in my book. His mama looks like fun. I love my Escalade.
