It seems as though the imposing dark cloud looming over Dwayne Johnson is yet to move on from him. After a career-breaking power move ended up landing him in trouble with a studio juggernaut, the actor had seemingly begun finding refuge within a holiday project and making himself a walking and talking video diary by posting the most mundane tidbits of his schedule on social media. But the PR stunt that had worked toward slowly rebuilding his image and reputation by deflecting away from the DC debacle has now come to a shocking standstill.
The Rock reveals via Instagram that late last night, his mother Ata Johnson was involved in a deadly car crash, and in the aftermath, the actor has posted a note of gratitude and ensured the world about her well-being and speedy recovery.

Dwayne Johnson Thankful After Mother Survives Deadly Car Crash
According to the Instagram update posted by Dwayne Johnson, his mother, Ata Johnson, was hit by a drunk driver late last night resulting in a collision that crushed almost half of the car’s front. Luckily, the driver’s side was left unharmed, even though the force of the impact in the accident could have been just as deadly. The police and fire departments of Los Angeles arrived on the scene and Ata Johnson was given immediate care.
Dwayne Johnson, in a touching note, shared via social media:
“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.”
The note was in reference to Ata Johnson’s successful battle against stage 3 cancer which she beat in 2010 and the head-on collision accident she survived in August 2014. In 2018, The Rock revealed how as a teenager, he had to save his mother from attempting suicide after the family lost their home.

Dwayne Johnson’s life has been nothing short of a miraculous journey of struggle and survival. The Rock, born into legacy, had begun with a chosen career in football. After failing to get drafted into NFL, the star moved on in his father’s footsteps by joining WWE and championing as a professional wrestler. A successful run well until 2009, the Brahma Bull then sought out greener pastures in Hollywood, where once again, he was rejected and criticized for his physique which was being deemed irrational for playing the part of a movie star.
According to him, the industry was set up as a 10-year challenge to prove himself by rising up as the best among his contemporaries and being the most successful actor in the decades to come. His strategic career moves were planned out in detailed minutes and The Rock eventually succeeded. 2022 recorded him as the highest-paid actor in the world, according to the business magazine Forbes.

He is also in talks to buy WWE from McMahon after the latter’s volatile end of term and retirement. Now, Johnson works to retain his crown and trudges forward despite life throwing curve balls at the Black Adam star in a most consistent and devastating fashion.
