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,

Pictures? Really?!!!!! How INSANELY awful to exploit the injuries and misfortunes of others. Talking to celebs on the street is fair game. Posting photos of a possibly injured celebrity with no respect for their family or those close to them and without knowing the severity of injuries, beyond disgusting. Also taking such action with absolutely no regard for those in the other vehicle. So Charlie Sheen goes bat $#!% crazy and now all decency has gone out the window? It's nauseating.

TMZ take these picures down NOW, It's totally disturbing and completely tasteless. I'm begining to think you guys have no moral compass, everything doesn't have to be treated as just gossip, think about his family and having to see their dad in such a state on your site, good job HARVEY,NOT.

You're supposed to always swerve RIGHT!

Most people are right handed and it's a natural reaction to turn the wheel right. If both vehicles swerve RIGHT you usually avoid a head on collision!
