Dwayne Johnson is honoring a fan who tragically died recently in a terrifying interstate crash.
The Rock, sent a video message to Angelo Pizarro showing his support to their mom Aileen, who passed away in the crash after the Youtuber “McSkillet” drove the wrong way down a busy highway. Angelo also lost his 12 year old sister in the accident. McSkillet died as well, who’s real name is Trevor Heitmann.
Johnson got attention of this over the weekend when he saw a tweet on Twitter from Angelo asking for a video to honor his late mom.
“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!” Angelo wrote.

Dwayne replied with a video expressing his condolences.
“I’m sending you so much love and light and strength your way, from my family to yours,” Johnson says in a video Angelo later posted. “I’m so sorry to hear about your sister and your mom and this tragic loss that you’re going through. If your mom could see me now, which I’m sure she can, I just want to thank her for all the love and for being such a big fan. Stay strong.”
@TheRock THANK YOU SO MUCH SIR. I hope everyone knows how amazing you are. I can’t stop smiling knowing she’s smiling so much. Just, thank you. And again thank you to every single person who viewed my post (now over a million). pic.twitter.com/tQisyRGgVT

It is believed that Heitmann was driving his car nearly 100 miles per south while driving into oncoming traffic on the I-805 Highway. He eventually hit a Hyundai SUV, which burst into flames.
“People were running around … and someone was on the ground,” a witness told the news outlet. “They were trying to help him, he was raising his hand, and they were just surrounding him.”
Such a sad story.
