Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Makes a New Friend After Hitting Parked Car

As if being an awesome actor and wrestler wasn't enough, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is apparently a great guy as well.

Back in May, Johnson accidentally side-swiped a man's truck while driving to a movie set in Wakefield, Massachusetts. The world probably wouldn't have found out about the incident if Johnson himself didn't post details of the accident on his Instagram account.

"Here's a fun story to start your week off," Johnson wrote on his account. "I'm driving 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."

After looking to see what happened, the former WWE Champion noticed he sideswiped another pickup and destroyed the mirror. Johnson turned around and drove back to the car to find the owner, Audie Bridges, walking across the street.

Johnson told Bridges what happened, asked for his information and said he would leave his as well and "take care of everything."

Shortly after Bridges realized he was talking to "the most electrifying man in sports entertainment," the two ended up "belly laughing" over the incident like "two ol crazy buddies."

The "Furious 7" star checked back with his new pal a few days later and Bridges said he wouldn't accept any money for the window as he fixed it himself.

"Want to thank Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass. for being so cool about the whole thing," said Johnson. "Life is funny cause you never know who you're gonna run into."

Check out the full post below.

 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.
