MHP asks for help in Hervey crash

The Mississippi Highway Patrol issued the following statement:

MHP Completes Investigation of Fatal Crash

The Mississippi Highway Patrol has completed its investigation concerning the traffic crash that claimed the life of Anthony Hervey from Oxford, MS, on July 19, 2015. Investigators say Hervey, 49, was the driver of a 2005 Ford Explorer traveling westbound in the left lane of US278 inside Lafayette County. A reconstruction of the crash shows the Explorer left the roadway at the crossover section of US278 and County Road 285 then continued down into the median south of US278. The Explorer reentered US278, crossed both westbound lanes and continued off the right shoulder of US278. The Explorer then collided with an embankment and concrete ditch causing the vehicle to roll over several times and coming to final rest on its roof.  Hervey was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lafayette County Coroner’s Office.  

 A passenger in the Explorer, Juliette Barnum, from Stuart, Oklahoma, sustained injuries from the crash and was transported to Baptist North Hospital in Oxford. Investigators interviewed witnesses concerning the crash including Ms. Barnum who stated a silver vehicle occupied by 5 black males was following their vehicle and swerved towards them but did not make contact. Ms. Barnum also stated the actions of the silver vehicle caused the Explorer to leave the roadway.  An examination of the Explorer by investigators confirmed no contact was made with a second vehicle. Another witness who observed the crash stated she saw the Explorer leave the roadway and crash, but could not confirm the presence of another vehicle.

Due to lack of information regarding license plate, or make and model of the silver vehicle possibly involved in the crash, the Mississippi Highway Patrol is asking for the public’s help in the ongoing investigation. Anyone with information concerning the crash and possible identification of the silver vehicle can call 662-563-6415.

Sounds like the passenger in the vehicle told a 'convenient lie'. Why did the passenger use the account of the deceased driver as to the mysterious 2nd vehicle and its occupants? If she was in the vehicle, why didn't she see it?

She was likely asleep. They were returning from a rally where she had just burned her NAACP card. Hervey could trace his roots to a black confederate soldier that died at Shiloh. They were black people preaching the exact opposite of what black culture, including some of their various militant groups, are preaching. This is quickly escalating across the south. A truck flying the flag was shot in South Carolina last week. Just this Tuesday a 17 year old in McComb flying the flag had a gun pulled on him and his flag stolen.

whether 'its coming' (whatever 'it' is) or not, currently gold is the lowest it's been in several years and is a very sound investment at the time.....especially with the possibility of Greece and Europe causing prices to skyrocket overnight......just throwing that out there.....

I think 'it' is many different things; a consortium of different fecal matter hitting the fan at one time.
1) financial collapse
2) a race war
3) general societal unrest
4) a holy war
5) the zombie apocalypse
6) the biblical apocalypse / the antichrist and all that jazz
7) utter bullsh*t to scare you into buying things you don't need, cuz you know- you can pay your power bill with gold, apparently.

Has anyone realized or thought about how similar this road incident is to the stories of how blacks traveling were treated in the south in the 50-60s? Sounds like a seen from Mississippi Burning, except it is black-on-black... The very tactics of terror and harassment that so many fought against in the 1960's is now the method of operation of the very people their ancestors fought to free from such terror and harassment...

This whole thing is just weird. The owner of the vehicle said she didn't know Hervey and was just giving him a ride, but she let him drive because he "knew the area?" Who does that?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.
