If only we could all be The Rock when we get into car wrecks.
Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson posted a photo to his Instagram on Monday and shared a story of how he recently side-swiped a car while driving too fast and furious.
In the caption, Johnson explains that as he was driving to set for his latest project, he accidentally broke off the side mirror of a parked pick-up truck. "First thing I thought was, 'Aw shit.. someone's not gonna be happy..,'" Johnson wrote on Instagram. "I flipped a U-turn and drove back to scene."
Here's a fun story to start your week off... I'm driving to set in my pick up truck - music blasting - I'm singing away like I'm having a one man party in my truck - then I hear a loud BANG. What the hell..? Look in my rear view and see I sideswiped another pick up that was parked in the street and destroyed the side mirror. First thing I thought was, "Aw shit.. someone's not gonna be happy..". I flipped a U-turn and drove back to scene. Just as I got out of my truck a guy was walking across the street to his truck. I said "Sir, is this your truck?". He stopped and stared at me for a good 5 seconds, looked around his neighborhood, looked back at me and "Yes it is. Why?". I said "Well, sorry to tell ya I sideswiped it and knocked the hell outta your mirror and may have done even more damage. You give me your info and I'll leave you mine and I'll take care of everything". He stared at me again, cocked his head sideways and said.."Uhhh.. Are you The Rock?". I said "Yup". He broke out into a huge smile and said "Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!". I started belly laughing at that, then he started laughing and before you know it we're both standing in the middle of the street pointing to his mirror and laughing like two ol' crazy buddies. I checked back in with him a few days later and he refused to accept any money and said he fixed the damage himself. Want to thank Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass. for being so cool about the whole thing. Life is funny cause you never know who you're gonna run into... and sure as hell never know who's truck you're gonna sideswipe while driving to work.
When the "Furious 7" actor returned to the parked car, the owner stared at him and, starstruck, realized it was The Rock who hit his car. The two quickly ended up laughing over the matter "like two ol' crazy buddies." In the Instagram photo, Johnson and the man, Audie Bridges, posed together in front of the smashed mirror. Apparently Bridges was so happy to meet the actor that he wouldn't even let him pay to fix the damage. Life is nice when you're The Rock.
