Actor and former WWE wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson posted a frightening image on Instagram of two cars involved in an accident on Sunday.

According to Johnson, his mother and cousin were hit by a drunk driver this past week, and he posted an intense message to go along with the photo:

My mom & cousin @linafanene were struck head on by a drunk driver this week - they lived. 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.

Fortunately, both his mother and cousin survived. The Rock's cousin, Lina Fanene, posted a picture to let everyone know that she was all right.

Still all smiles! Very grateful to be alive and for the love from all of my family and friends! Incredibly blessed! ❤️

Our best wishes go out to the victims of the crash, and we'll be pulling for all involved to have a quick and full recovery.
