Days after Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson revealed that his mother, Ata Maivia-Johnson, and cousin Lina Fanene had been involved in a car accident that could have claimed their lives, the movie star posted a sweet Instagram picture of his leaving the hospital with the woman who raised him.

"Takin' mama home," The Rock wrote today. "Banged up, but she's a tough one and will make a full recovery."

He continued, "Grateful to see her smile. And thank you guys for all the prayers, love and well wishes. #GratitudeAndBearHugs #ChoicesMatter #100PercentPreventable #DontDrinkAndDrive."

In the picture, his mother is sitting in a wheelchair with a smile on her face and a cast on her left arm. The Rock is smiling, too, grateful his mother is better and able to go home.

In the post from a few days ago, Johnson had said that his mother and cousin were struck head-on by a drunken driver last week.

"They lived,” he wrote. “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.”
