Must be a WWE fan! Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is used to riding fast and furious, but this week his driving (and music playlist!) got the best of him. On Monday, the Furious 7 actor treated fans to a funny story that happened on the way to work.

"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," the 43-year-old explained via Instagram. 

"First thing I thought was, 'Aw sh-t.. 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?'" he continued. "'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.'"

To The Rock's surprise, the man couldn't care less about his damaged side-view mirror. Instead, he perked up, had a laugh with the star, and even took a photo with him.

"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!'" The Rock wrote. "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."

The actor noted that he called him back a few days later, but the man refused to accept any money for the damages. "[I] want to thank Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass. for being so cool about the whole thing," The Rock added. "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."
