These things can happen at the quickest moment when you're full attention isn't to what's in front of you. I've been there on the freeway, sudden stop in front of me but luckily I had my seatbelt on or I would have been dead on the pavement. My prayers are to David and his family.

Wow, a lot of morons here. Let me break this down for you, since most of you are incapable of logical though:

1. There is no indication that he was drinking. Maybe tailgating, but not drinking. Just because someone has a past history with alcohol does not mean ALL subsequent accidents they get into for the rest of their life is a result of alcohol.

2. "Photographer should have been helping him!" Uhh, how? If he's actually injured, then it's likely a concussion, bone, or back injury. Probably best to leave him there until paramedics arrive instead of trying to move him.

3. "I pray for your safety David" "Stay with us" Give me a break. These injuries are obviously not life-threatening. He's not going to die. And he's certainly not reading TMZ, so quit acting like you're talking to him.

For those of you speculating as to his sobriety, death wish, or other pure conjecture, you've apparently never driven in Hollywood. People drive like maniacs on crack. Having someone brake suddenly in front of you is the LEAST dangerous maneuver you will encounter.

Geesh people. Ok, suicide attempt?! W/E! He could've SLAMMED into car in front of him! I avoid rear end accidents on highway swinging onto shoulder, but if he was in town, where do you go? Up a curb/sidewalk/house? Just asking as I don't know that area at all.
No time to think to react more properly anyway. Besides, I thought they were working things out/hanging out together all the time anyway?

Just me     

I hope he will be ok , but I don't see any blood. He must have been conscious to be able to get out of the car and on to the ground.

Being transported to St. Joe's in Burbank is way worse than being hit head on! You'll die there!

NM, now that I saw area, he would've ended up in someones house! wow! Possibly running over kids sitting in LR OR BR..I mean look at area, what would you have done????
I don't think there's any way in that area for it not to have been bad?! Who know's how close the car in front of him, had a car in front of them, or kids crossing?? Like i said, i'm going by pics, no idea of the area lights or crossings.
