Officer Matt Rittenhouse was killed in an automobile accident when his patrol car went out of control shortly before midnight.

It is believed that severe weather and rain-slicked roads, the result of Hurricane Ivan, contributed to the accident.

Officer Rittenhouse had served with the Harriman Police Department for three years and had previously served with the Roane County Sheriff's Department for two years. He is survived by his parents and two sisters.

Christmas Eve again Baby Boy. How does time just keep going and going and at the same time seem like it is not moving at all. Someday time won't be an issue anymore and we will all be back together for eternity. Until then, I love you to eternity and beyond ,and look up hoping you are looking at me.

You are my eternal "Gift from God" Matthew, my precious son.
