Arquette would have a body board under him and a neck brace just for precaution. I guess the blood is hidden. He would not be lying on the ground until the paramedics got around to him.

Cops will be testing everyone.

Sounds like David was tailgaiting. Then caused a worse accident by swerving into on coming traffic to miss huitting the vehicle that he was tailgaiting.

Brilliant.

Why does the oncoming car(the green one) look like it was in the middle and not right side of the street? Might not be David's fault!

Jesus people .... he's OK. He is lying there unattended with people on the scene. If he were remotely hurt, there would be someone tending to him. Bleeding??? Where???

@ Tammy

It's called driving at a safe speed and at a safe distance. I do it every day and it seems to work just fine for me.

And look at the latest pic... it was in a NEIGHBORHOOD. If you can't stop your vehicle while driving through a neighborhood without causing a high-impact crash, then I say again, you are an idiot.
