David Arquette was involved a head-on collision this afternoon. He was injured and hospitalized but the injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

He was in W. Hollywood when his car veered into oncoming traffic. David was behind a car that stopped suddenly, causing him to swerve to avoid it.

David then headed straight into oncoming traffic and slammed into a car going in the opposite direction. Paramedics quickly arrived on the scene.

The actor way to Burbank airport to board a private jet which was going to Las Vegas, for the grand opening of Sugar Factory, a candy store at the Paris Hotel.

He was supposed to attend a party hosted by Kim Kardashian.

That was not to be, as he was taken away by ambulance. A little bit later, officials said the drivers of both vehicles suffered minor to moderate injuries.

Good news, in many respects, considering how bad a head-on crash could've been for Arquette and the other driver. We wish him a fast, full recovery.

UPDATE: Arquette is okay! And pretty funny! He Tweeted the following last night:

Even though the reports were that the injuries were minor to moderate. A head on crash is still considered to be a serious accident. It is usually the days and beyond after a car crash/accident that you feel the most pain. I can easily believe that those involved will Need some type of doctor visits and physical therapy in the weeks to come. Hopefully in time, all involved will heal and get back to their normal activities. PEACE!!

Did u not read the fact that it was minor injuries?? He's not exactly just died!! Plus if I was married To his wife I'd be hooked on crack so count him Lucky!!


There are few words that can be expressed to David and The Cox/Arquette family at a time like this. I had recently seen David on Lady O's show and he was trying to take one day at a time while still trying to hold it all together. The brighter side is he and the other travelers were able to get immediate attention. Hopefully all the families involved in this personal tragedy will be able to reach out to each other at such a sad time for all involved!!
