Junior Seau car accident.
We're told the retired NFL superstar sustained injuries in the wreck -- cops are on scene. TMZ obtained these photos of Seau's Cadillac Escalade which landed at the bottom of a cliff several feet from the beach.

 As TMZ first reported, Junior Seau was arrested early this morning for domestic violence.

Suicide attempt? I doubt it. I think he was just rushing home to finish the job.

If he was intending to commit suicide, he really needs to find a bigger cliff. Likely he was just trying to get his wife/girlfriend's attention.

I had a boyfriend who did that once. I broke up with him and he supposedly took a bunch of pills. His family called me to come to the ER to be with him.

I didn't go. Why award bad behavior?

Stop the cycle of DV...look at both sides, generations before and stop the cycle for the generations, now and to come. Everyone gets sick and trapped in the cycle.

If someone was gonna kill themselves by driving off a cliff they might want to find something a little steeper.. You could walk down that hill to get to the beach and go for a swim, didnt know you could walk down a cliff..

Junior Seau is definitely a celebrity. One of the best linebackers and defensive players the NFL has ever seen. I don't see how this isn't worthy of a mention.

He was probably just really tired after being up all night and accidentally went over. It would be easy to do in the dark if you weren't paying attention.

what a shoddy bit of reporting. Not only does the headline and lead make it unclear as to whether it was a suicide attempt, there is unclear attribution as well. "We're told the NFL superstar sustained injuries," told by who? Law enforcement attributed in the previous graph? the hospital? The story emphasizes the sensational photos instead of accurate reporting, but then again its TMZ so what else can we expect?

This is surprising. Sounds like a suicide attempt. Not something you see Seau doing.

You ning nongs "drove off a cliff in Carlsbad the accident happened just north of Oceanside" Carlsbad is South of Oceanside not North, failed geography much?????? Drove off a cliff???? hahaha the cliffs between Oceanside and Carlsbad you can walk down, if he was trying to drive off a cliff he should of driven down to Torrey Pines....like a typical selfish Polynesian boy not man that beats his wife he was seeking attention and sympathy of course he would drive off somewhere where he would not hurt himself severly....that lafa Samoa is ri****ulous.
