This man, Patrick Pittman was NOT from Enterprise, Ala. He was from Enterprise, MS. He was only 27 years old, not 29 years old. His full name was Patrick Kevin Pittman.
This reporter, C. Ward, needs to get her facts straight, before having it published in any paper. Also, Patrick Kevin Pittman was killed at 3:18 a.m. and not 2:18 a.m. If this reporter can't get facts straight, then she needs to find another job!!!
I am Patrick Kevin Pittman's cousin, and the paper needs to do a correction on the death of this boy. All the family are very upset over the way this was written, and the mistakes that are in it. Plus the fact that his full name was not put in here.

This is a bit off-topic...but I'm not sure why there are problems with geography with TOPIX. I am from Pascagoula, not Gautier.

On topic, what a scary place to have an accident. It was a tragic one ... and like all accidents, there will be long term consequences.

People on the Coast drive like they are in the Indy 500. It's a wonder there are not more accidents like this.

Blessings and Grace to all of the families involved.

I havent seen Patrick since he was young. I am his fathers first cousin. and i agree if this reporter dont know what they are doing then it doesnt need to be published.. its hard enough on the family without someone twisting things around

I meant to add this as well. If this reporter gets all of this wrong , how can they be relied on to bring accurate news.? The more i read the article the more upset I become. Anything could have happened to him that caused the accident.. Automatically its like its being implied he was drinking or on drugs.. i understand test have to be done but i feel like that is slandering his name and i don't like it one bit. It also makes me feel that people who didn't know him are judging him for all the wrong reasons even though he is no longer here. That in itself is sad. I guess some people have no respect at all.

Janet, I did not say that Mr. Pittman was speeding. I simply said that many people do...and it's a wonder why there are not more accidents like this.

Sorry if you took offense to that observation about our area in general. None was intended.

I was wondering if anyone in the family has contacted The Mississippi Press for a correction? They seem to be pretty willing to run corrections, although most of the time they run them in such a way that there is no real connection to the story ... so most people do not realize what the correction is about.

I can understand the familie's frustration with the poor detailing of the story ... it's a valid point.

Blessings to all of you.
