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 .

"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."
