Two Rogersville citizens remain in critical condition after pulling in the path of a semi-tractor trailer on State Highway 11W Friday afternoon, according to a hospital spokesman.

Thomas "Jack" Stubblefield, 545 Oakgrove Road, and Dorothy Parvin, 919 Oakgrove Road, were traveling south on 11W in a pick-up truck driven by Stubblefield.

"Stubblefield, driver of the pickup, pulled out in front of George Johnson, Jr., of Bimble, Tennessee," stated Tennessee Highway Patrol Officer Jim Lee.

Officials stated, Johnson saw Stubblefield pull into the turn lane directed toward Main Street (dead man's curve). As Johnson continued traveling north on 11W, Stubblefield pulled in front of him.

"Due to the time of day, the sun was probably in his (Stubblefield's) eyes," stated Lee.

Traffic was backed up as rescuers blocked the highway and prepared an LZ (landing zone) for Wings and Lifestar Air Rescue helicopters.

"The friends (Stubblefield and Parvin) were flown to Wellmont Holston Valley Hospital for treatment of serious injuries," said Lee.

There are no charges pending in this crash, according to the trooper.

While officers were dealing with backed up traffic due to the crash, Wal-Mart reported two white men stole a Hewlett Packard computer valued at more than $500 and fled the parking lot in a maroon car with North Carolina tags.

Although a BOLO (be on the lookout) was issued in the case, a number of officers were occupied at the crash sight. No citings of the vehicle were reported.
