go home!    

are you all idiots??? The article clearly states someone stopped suddenly in front of him and he swerved to the left to avoid hitting them and in turn, collided with a car going in the opposite direction. That is a normal, human reaction while driving. Pull your heads out of your asses! David, hope you are okay.

Why the hell swerve into on coming traffic? Either rear end the car in front of you, or side swipe the one next to you in the same direction. But don't do a head on! I realize it happened in a millisecond, but head on? Hope everyone including David isn't too damaged.

Don't take a second with someone for granted.
Hopefully all is good.

The new information (he swerved to avoid rear ending the car in front of him, is reassuring it wasn't some crazy suicide attempt).

I hope all involved are okay.
