The Rock's Mom

Car Smashed by Drunk Driver

in Head on Collision

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."

Glad everyone (even the drunk) made it out ok. Never good to lose anyone. Hopefully the drunk driver find a reason to get help.

He should, of course, pay for the best lawyer possible to get this drunk driver off the road.

One thing in life when driving "you have to learn that you have to drive for you and everybody else" and it sucks but that's what people do to other innocent people. Thank god she's not dead..

As a car buff, just a clarification if those pictures are the actual vehicle; they were driving a Cadillac SRX. not an Escalade. The front end and wheels of the crashed Cadillac are that of an SRX. The photo of Lina and ATA inside the vehicle are that of an SRX, you can tell by the slope of the rear window and small window behind the rear window. Regardless Cadillac's are safe and thank goodness they are safe
