So sad, I hope he is okay, and we should pray for him instead of analyzing why he swerved his car... I am sure he didnt have time to think, and probably didnt think another car was coming from the other direction.

I hope he is ok. But why don't these hollywood types get drivers, they are usually distracted for one reason or the other, drinking, texting etc... Just keep a driver 24/7

TMZ, you are becoming so disrespectful. Who is selling you photos, but not helping an injured guy? This is disgusting. Are we all going to just become people who sit around photographing suffering, but not helping? This is lame.

As much as I don't care for David Arquette, I still think TMZ is consistently stepping over a line with the publishing of pictures, graphic or not, of what appears to be a serious car crash..does TMZ HAVE to provide the world with instant pix of an injured David Arquette? Is it possible, whatsoever, for TMZ to have just taken pix of the car and noted that Arquette was injured. Harvey LEVINE, I'm wondering, if this were a family member of yours, if you'd feel alright whoring out the pix for money. Drunk or high celebs, fine, injured and still awaiting ambulance? Not so much.

The only way you swerve into on comming traffic is because your car was forced to by being hit by another car. Not to avoid hitting a car from behind.

TMZ photog witnesses a life-threatening accident and thinks not "call 911" but "I've got to get a picture of this." Celebs can expect a certain amount of invasion of privacy, but they are human beings. How many of us, if we were laying in the street bleeding, would welcome a paparazzi to take pictures? I know there's no "common decency" anymore but...Really? This was really necessary? Hope he is ok.
