Mother, cousin of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson injured in Clermont DUI crash

ORLANDO — Authorities in central Florida are investigating a traffic crash that injured the mother and cousin of professional wrestler and actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

According to Clermont police, officers stopped a vehicle believed to be driven by an impaired driver on Aug. 2. Police say the driver fled the stop, ran two nearby red lights, and struck a vehicle driven by a woman identified as Johnson's mother. She and a passenger, Johnson's cousin, were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

A police report did not list names, but Johnson's mother is Ata Maivia-Johnson and he revealed later on Instagram that his injured cousin is Savelina "Lina" Fanene, who is training in Orlando to be a WWE Diva.

Police filed a warrant for DUI and other charges with the state attorney's office on the driver of the vehicle that fled the stop.

On his Twitter account, Johnson posted a picture of the accident and called the incident completely preventable.

He then posted a photo today to Instagram of himself wheeling his mother out of a hospital with a cast on her arm.
