Totally tasteless to publish those photos. Especially since we don't know how badly he's hurt. Would TMZ have posted Princess Di's photos if they were on the scene even while it was happening?? Harvey... use some restraint.

He doesn't appear to be too badly hurt in the picture. I hope that's the case. It makes me a little sick that a bystander thought this would be a great time to snap a picture of him. "Oh look! David Arquette at a difficult point in his life! I can sell that!"

If you are driving on a city street so fast and so close to the person in front of you that you can't stop without causing a high-impact collision, the YOU are the idiot,

there are rumors that he suddenly saw an apparition of Charlie Sheen yelling "WINNING" and he had to swerve to avoid hitting him

TMZ it is time that you start pulling offensive postings. No one s/b wishing harm on this guy, regardless of his history. I hope he's all right, and all the idiots like DANA should think about how they'd feel if this was someone in their family.

I say again, Where's the blood, inside his cowboy boots? Sensationalizm much....

Still hoping the driver of the other car isn't hurt. I see airbags.

I hope he is tested for alchohol ASAP so everyone can see what a liar he is.

He was probably trying to outrun TMZ at the time.

Well said nof. All the people making negative comments about the crash obviously are not experienced drivers. At some point, every body has been in that situation, when someone short stops. Luckily, the time it happened to me, no one was coming when i swerved left. My mother, when it happend to her, there was no where to swerve and she ended up being in the middle of a 3-car wreck. This is not funny. I hope they nail the guy who short stopped! David's air bag is deployed, those things hurt! Guy has to be in some pain right now!
