Authorities say his mother, April Brummitt, 30, was driving down the road when she lost control of her vehicle. The car then hit a tree.
Another child, 7-year-old boy Dakota Brummitt was ejected from the car. Johnathon and his mother remained pinned in the wreckage.

Please please do not consider youself as "butting in" we are just happy to hear that Mom and Sibling are still with us!!! Car Accidents that happen in small outlying areas do not get the coverage that accidents get that happen within Knox County. Often we read a couple of lines about the accident and then hear nothing else and we are left to wonder how the outcome of the injured people were. Please keep us informed and we will all keep a good thought for the Mom too

I have so many best cousins that I can't name them all. God gave me the best present ever, first when he saved me, then when he took me home to be with him on December 30, 2007, after a car accident, so now I'm spending it with Papaw John Brummitt who God called home on April 17, 2007, he would have been 63, January 1, 2008. I know I'll be so missed cause I'm so loved by everyone I meet. I've touched so many lives. Now I'll watch over you, cause God chose me as his special helper. Please don't be sad for me for I'm in Heaven. Be good so you'll join me someday. Please come be with my family at Cooke Mortuary on January 4, 2008, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for receiving of friends and funeral service to follow at 8:00 p.m. Reverend Greg Sharp and Reverend Dewayne Kitts. Interment 2:00 p.m. Saturday at Chris Keck Cemetery. Cooke Mortuary, Maynardville, TN.

Thought Some of You would be interested in this. Thanks again for all the prayers and Thoughts!!
