My prayers are with the patton family. Way to go Toon you finally killed someone, I knew it would happen sooner or later.

How is that mean, or clueless? Jimmy has past DUI's, not to mention a drug problem (not a big secret), and a pregnant wife at home. I have known jimmy my whole life and the fact is he has been out of control for a long time now. This exact scenario has ran through my head before. I hope and pray that this is a wake up call for jimmy and he can overcome this horrible tragedy he has created. My thoughts and prayers are with the patton family, I know them as well.

My thoughts are with both the Patton and Toon families as they both need alot of prayers to get them through this tragedy. Does anyone know who else was with Mr. Patton and how are they doing. Thought I heard it was his son and grandchild and they were hurt seriously. I guess jimmy probably was able to walk away, that's usually the way it happens. SO SAD!!!!!

Not to say Jimmy isn't at fault, because we all know that he is, and as c_town stated we all knew this would happen. I also think its the laws fault for letting him get a way with it so many times in the past. If the police would've enforced the law like they should've forever ago he would A. Probably not have a license. B. Be in jail already. C. Possibly learned along time ago.
yeah right

I also heard he was on felony probation. I bet he gets sent away for a long time like 10 years.

My prayers go out to the Patton family. I heard Darrin was in the car along with his daughter. Darrin has broken ribs but his daughter had only minor scraps & bruises.

I am not wanting to defend Jimmy it is a very sad situation but you know when he woke up yesterday I don't think he said I think I am going out and get drunk and kill someone in an accident. Just think about you that were at Columbia Daze over the weekend and were drinking it could of happened to any of you (Drinking and Driving). My prayers are with the Patton family as well as the Toon family. When you know both families and something like this happens and your from a small town it affects everyone.

its a horrible tradgedy. but,,,he is without sin, let him cast the first stone. you people that write these bad things about Jim Toon..why dont you state your name/? your real name?
Its horrible, but, i would be willing to bet,,if you knew Jimmy, you are not without your own fault.
maybe its time to examine our own lives...each of us.

There is no excuse for a repeat offender to drive under the influence of whatever. Especially with a pregnant wife at home!

Please read back a couple quotes "THE BLOOD SCREENS CAME BACK NEGATIVE". This in fact came from the hospital. Please, please people think before you speak. This was an accident and I feel for all parties involved.

bystander your source is going against hippa policies. I hope they were negative. C-Town I hope you are never behind the wheel and have been drinking and accident happens. You all should really watch what you are saying. Never say Never, because it could happen to any one of us.
