the-rock-mother-cousin-car-crash-ses-1

posted the following on Instagram on Sunday, addressing his mother and cousin being struck by a drunk driver.

“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. #BearHugsAndGratitude #100PercentPreventable #ChoicesMatter”

Below is Rock’s Instagram post, which features a photo of the accident:

  • omega riddler

    Anybody who gets in their car drunk should have their car crushed, with them in it.

    • Michael Kondratiuk

      Harsh.

      • omega riddler

        Getting into a car drunk is someone people in danger, they don’t deserve any sympathy.

        • Michael Kondratiuk

          I agree, no sympathy. But to crushed? Seriously.

    • We’re Here

      Yeah, because murdering a (potential) murderer totally solves the problem. *Rolls eyes*

      • omega riddler

        I never said kill them, just start crushing the car then remove the scumbag before the pee dries

  • http://www.sescoops.com Undertaker316

    *facepalm* if you’re going to drink why not call a cab or have someone else drive but instead you endanger your life and other peoples lives, im glad the rocks mother and cousin got out of the accident alive and with minimal injuries

    • GUNxGAMExSTABBR

      The guy was probably to drunk to even realize that taxis even exist

  • ronjon 1000

    Rock: Hulk, I’m comin after your boy on Monday.

  • pwnez

    I’m glad to hear that his family survived. That is the most important thing. If you drive drunk and get into an accident, you should never be allowed to drive again.

    • Michael Kondratiuk

      Did the person get arrested?

      • http://youjizz.com/ Jomo

        Doesnt say, but there was two crashed cars on the picture and they know the person was drunk therefore I think he did get arrested.

        • Michael Kondratiuk

          I was wondering due to the fact The Rock said “track him down”. Nevermind :P

          • http://youjizz.com/ Jomo

            He probably meant like confront him, kick his azz

          • Michael Kondratiuk

            Yup, it was the cynic in me questioning the truth of the story. One side of the coin doesn’t make the other less relevant so-to-speak.

    • We’re Here

      I think never driving again is harsh, especially if it’s a kid in his 20s who has years to reflect and learn. However I think our punishments for DUIs (at least in my state) are laughable and should be stricter. We’re jailing people for pot (which people should also not be under the influence of when driving, but I’m talking recreational use here) for years yet people who could kill people even if they don’t might get some combination of relatively little jail time, fines, and suspended license. It’s getting ridiculous.

      • rob

        so if you kill someone while drunk ,, in your 20s you should have the benefit that you where not in control of your behavior as you where drunk,, rather then someone with a gun shooting and killing where you get life in jail,,, drunk driving crimes are too lenient.
        I am not saying this because of rock but all the others, you should get jail time and suspended drivers license told to retake the test, pay victims compensation,

  • brad

    It’s good to hear that is family is ok.

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    You can get years in prison for drugs. A DUI offense? A misdemeanor. The jail time minimums on average:

    1st DUI: 5 days
    2nd: 10 days
    3rd: 10 days

    License revokation/suspension:

    1st: 6 months
    2nd: 1 year
    3rd: 1 year

    What should be done to stop these idiots?

    Minimum MANDATORY jail time

    1st: 6 months + $1000 fine
    2nd: 3 years + $5000 fine
    3rd: 20 years + $25000 fine

    License?

    1st: 1 year
    2nd: 5 years
    3rd: Permanent

    No plea deals. You lose the chance to plea when you decide to get in a vehicle drunk and drive it.

    • Ayatollah of rock N rolla

      Probably gunna get hate for this but your “Mandatory” prosecution is just as ridiculous. 20 years in jail? People convicted of murder get out in less time. I kinda agree with the whole license thing tho, but id go 1st time 6 months, 2nd time its gone.

      • Bushwald Sexyface

        20 years for THIRD violation. Not the first. Think anyone would only get 20 years for a third murder? Nope.

      this is not a joking matter

      • G.I.R.L.

        What does this reference?

        • http://www.sescoops.com Undertaker316

          when stone cold got ran over its turned out to be rikishi who ran over stone cold and when he was asked by he did he said “i did it for the rock”

          • G.I.R.L.

            Ohhhhhh AE reference.
            I had the youtube the segment; I honestly forgot about it.

            Lol i have to admit that it was funny as heck.

        • Wilks

          How old are you?

          • G.I.R.L.

            24. I know, I should’ve known this reference. You may strike me once.

          • Wilks

            mmhm.

        • pwnez

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5bhLVGn2x0

          I did it for………………………………………….da Rock.

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Ah, he meant it in good spirits. Look, Drinking and Driving is so f’in dumb it’s not even funny. If someone had died here, I would agree that this is in super bad taste, but thankfully, everyone is safe. No harm, in my opinion.

    • Lana Crush

      You’re not funny.

    • G.I.R.L.

      I don’t get it.

    • GUNxGAMExSTABBR

      Actually that is funny. Does that make me a horrible human being for thinking that picture is funny. Absolutely not.

      • Kevin G. Wolfe

        You can tell someone’s from the attitude era when 1) they understand this reference 2) think it’s funny.

    • http://www.Twitter.com/Daniell02242471 Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

      This is not funny.

      • Michael Kondratiuk

        With 46 (at time of writing) up-votes I think the majority disagree.

        • http://www.Twitter.com/Daniell02242471 Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

          Like I said it’s not funny.

          Bottom Line

          • Guest

            To you. I think it’s quite funny.

        • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

          Haters gonna hate, man. Got a chuckle out of me. But who really cares what other people think? Peace.

    • Alan Lopez

      Lmao

  • Steve Cold Stone Austin

    that piece of sh it should never be allowed to drive again

  • http://youjizz.com/ Jomo

    That is the car the Rock bought for his mom and then showed it off in the internet, I would be pissed too… ina side note if you drink and drive you dont deserve to live just saying

    • GUNxGAMExSTABBR

      Thats an incredibly terrible thing to say. Basically you are saying that even if you drink one beer then drive. Then you dont deserve to live. If that was the case all of the adults in my family would be murdered because they always drive home from a family party even when they had some beers. You sir are a very bad troll

      • Kris Mystery

        The adults in your family deserve to go to jail before they kill somebody.

        • GUNxGAMExSTABBR

          The adults in my family are actually highly capable of driving after having some beers. They havent once caused any crashes or any deaths nor have any of them caused any crashes because of being too drunk. Of course you would think that even though you dont know my family. The adults in my family know how to control themselves. Just because you have had some drinks it doesnt mean that they are going to kill someone. So no the adults should not go to jail before they kill someone but thanks for the incredibly dull comment you had to make about my family

      • http://youjizz.com/ Jomo

        the very bad trolls are your adult family.. i dont care if you had one beer with family members or friends or in a bar -> YOU SHOULDNT DRIVE.. And the reason I say that drink and drive drivers shouldnt live, is because I prefer that they killed themselves than have them kill an innocent person

        • GUNxGAMExSTABBR

          Just because someone has some drinks it doesnt mean they are gonna kill people by driving drunk. Of course you dont realize this because you have never met my family but my family have always been able to control themselves even after drinking and have never caused any harm or death to anybody because they were too drunk. And I am not going to wish for my family to kill themselves either so thank you for that incredibly stupid comment you made about people who should kill themselves even if they had only one beer before they go take a drive

  • Herald

    man that’s an absolute shame i don’t blame the Rock for wanting vengeance because if a person did that to my family member i’d hunt them down as well. Honestly people if you’re gonna drink have a designated driver or take a cab home. It’s better to be safe and deal with the hangover than sorry and live with the regret on the pain you’ve inflicted on someone and their family

  • The Man From Jonestown

    Glad the family is okay. The driver needs jail time.

  • http://www.Twitter.com/Daniell02242471 Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

    I am happy that they are ok.

  • insomniacreviewer

    I’m glad everyone is okay.

  • Team Awesome

    This is why I don’t drink. See me personally is against drinking. But the reality is, drink at a moderate level and don’t be stupid to step foot in a car intoxicated or call a cab. At least have a friend with you who is sober to drive you to your destination.

  • BrockLesnarConqueredStreak

    and this is one of the reasons alcohol should be banned

    • Guest

      Because prohibition worked so well last time right?
