Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on Sunday sent a video tribute to the family of a mother (and fan) who was killed last week in a fiery, wrong-way crash on Interstate 805.
Aileen Pizarro and her daughter died after their car was hit by a driver going the wrong way.
Pizarro’s 19-year-old son posted more about his family on Twitter over the weekend, including that his mother was a huge fan of Johnson’s.
The Rock, who is known for being great to his fans, heard about the tragic event.
“I’m sending you so much love and light and strength your way from my family to yours,” Johnson said in the video. “…I’m so sorry to hear about your sister and your mom.”
The son saw the video and thanked Johnson for the kind gesture.
“I can’t stop smiling knowing she’s smiling so much. Just, thank you,” he tweeted.
My beautiful mom who passed away loved @TheRock so so SO much. I’m trying to get him to do even a video saying her name for the funeral. If you could retweet the crap outta this for him to see it that’d mean the world. Thank you! pic.twitter.com/ypr4ZJzMxw
