Dwayne Johnson Sideswipes Car, Poses for Picture With Owner (Photo)

“Here’s a fun story to start your week off,” the “San Andreas” star writes on Instagram

People like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson so much, they don’t even mind when he smashes up their cars.

The “San Andreas” and “Furious 7” star posted a photo to Instagram on Monday of him standing next to a fan and a pickup truck with a busted side mirror.

“Here’s a fun story to start your week off,” Johnson wrote in the caption for the photo. “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.”

Johnson turned around to assess the damage and found himself face to face with the owner of the pickup. He told the man that he would give him insurance information and pay for the damage. “He stared at me again, cocked his head sideways and said,’Uhhh.. Are you The Rock?’ Johnson wrote.

When Johnson responded affirmatively, the man said,  “Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!” The two shared a good laugh and Johnson took a picture with the man, whom he identified as Audie Bridges.

“Life is funny cause you never know who you’re gonna run into,” Johnson concluded. “And sure as hell never know who’s truck you’re gonna sideswipe while driving to work.”

Johnson will be seen next in the HBO series “Ballers,” which premieres June 21 at 10 p.m. ET.

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.
