Dwayne Johnson and mom Ata Johnson attend the Premiere Of Universal Pictures' "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" at Dolby Theatre on July 13, 2019 in Hollywood, California.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is feeling thankful that his mom, Ata Johnson, is going to be okay after a scary car accident took place late Thursday night (February 2).

The Black Adam star, 50, said that his mom, 74, is currently recovering after being involved in a crash in Los Angeles, noting that she’ll “continue to get evaluated.” He shared a photo of a red Cadillac SUV with the right front side of the car showing extensive damage on Instagram, writing alongside his post, “Thank you God she’s ok.”

“Angels of mercy watched over my mom as she was in a car crash late last night,” he continued, adding, “She’ll survive and continue to get evaluated.” The actor went on list his mom’s previous battles, noting her incredible resilience. “This woman has survived lung cancer, tough marriage, head-on collision with a drunk driver and attempted suicide,” he continued. “She’s a survivor, in ways that make angels and miracles real.”

The wrestler-turned-actor thanked first responders for being “caring,” “focused” and for staying on the phone with him, “talking me thru it all.” Johnson ended the post on a very real and sweet note: “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.” Dwayne’s father, Rocky Johnson, died in January 2020.

Actor Tyrese Gibson commented on the post: “Praise God we love you angel mother!!!!!!!!!! Praise God in the name of Jesus you will ALWAYS be covered…. We love you mother!!! GRACE!!!!!”
