I am so glad this happened after rehab, but, I'm very sorry its happened at all. I did feel a little weirded out be the picture of David. Kinda like I'm invading his privacy. I feel bad for that and I pray for him and Harvey (with his tmz clan) that were in the other car. I just hope noone's too badly injured.

And thats the truth    

WOW I guess most of you did not BOTHER to actually READ the 5 sentences to this story. A person in front of him slammed on their brakes, he swurved to the left to keep from hitting them and he hit a car head on. Nothing to do with drinking or a suicide attempt.

The person who stopped unexpectedly in front of him was probably texting or on the phone. Apparently not paying attention, kind of like some of the readers of this story.

Funny, I don't see a scratch, a mark or any blood on him at all. Has Arquette got a job or is he out of work in pop culture generation bohemian psycho? Is this a wag the dog stunt to make news? Nah...

God bless you, David. I know several people that have made similar reactionary mistakes when they saw a car suddenly stopped in front of them. This is a bad one. I hope somebody called Courtney right away...

Obviously, it was the fault of the guy in front of him for suddenly stopping short. Either way, someone was going to get hit in that scenario. I hope they know the guy who was driving the front car, for insurance and everything else.

Praying that everyone involved is safe and in good condition.

I'd say this is one lucky dude getting out a party hosted by KK. God must be watching over him.
