Glad he's okay. Note to people: if something like this happens to you, swerve right, not left. Taking out a pole or a sign is better than a head on accident.

Good Lord, he looks like he's "posing for the cameras" -- he got bumped up a bit and is milking this for his own PR --

SHOULD HAVE LEFT BRAKING DISTANCE SO HE WAS PREPARED FOR THE CAR IN FRONT BRAKING, THATS WHAT PEOPLE USUALLY DO.
Could have seriously hurt someone, so don't expect sympathy when you was doing the driving (keep your distance or get a driver !!)

So so elementary: Maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you in case it "short stops" and ALWAYS swerve to the right. He was likely either tailgating while speeding in a residental neighborhood or simply texting while speeding in a residential neighborhood. Screw David, where are all the "thoughts and prayers" for the folks in the Jeep that were perhaps just driving to grandmas with a box of cookies?

This guy really needs a Good Therapist. One day he will look back at his life and wonder "What was I thinking". Courtney Cox run while you can and don't look back at this Idiot.

I can't believe all of the judgemental comments. David is a loving father & a REAL person. I have met him, personally & his daughter Coco & he is genuine & caring. When you have lived the perfect life with nothing to hide, then MAYBE you are entitled to your opinion. Maybe if we offered more support with the time we spend condemning, this would be a better world. David is a GREAT person in all ways. Thanks to all who are praying. To those who are condemning, please re-think your comments. He's human, has feelings and never claimed to be perfect. My thoughts & prayers are with you David and hope to see you and Coco again this year at San Genarro, Hollywood in September.

no seat belt? Uh....er...doesn't he know Princess Diana would have survived her car crash if she'd been belted? Oh wait, he probably thinks the law in California doesn't apply to him (the seat belt law, dufus), the way Maria Shriver felt that she was exempt from parking laws.

David, you have a kid. Wear your ****ing seatbelt.

So much wrong with this story. Car in front of him stopped ... really. Where is that car, left. Don't think so, would have been blocked by the crash.

Stopped for what. Look at the photo's. There is no light, no crosswalk, no driveway or intersection.

Here ... how about this. He was in such a hurry he pulled out to pass the car in front of him. Even though there is a solid yellow line and this is in an area with a curve ... to catch his free ride to Vegas.

Ah, there ... that sounds much better.

my sister was in the car that stopped, she said that the AS_ HOLE behind her was TAILGATING BLOWING HIS HORN AND FLASHING HIS HEAD LIGHTS, so she pulled over thinking he was a cop, he gave her the bird and hit the on coming van. She said the cop on the seen said he MAY be high???
