Three Vehicle Accident Claims
Life of a Couple
Rogersville Review | Mar 15, 2006
ROGERSVILLE-An elderly married couple died Friday as a result of an accident involving three vehicles at the intersection of East Main Street and Highway 11W, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
According to an accident report filed by Trooper Richard McElhaney, the two fatalities were identified as William D. Brooks, 72, and Ruth W. Brooks, 71, both of Rogersville.
The Trooper's report states the accident occurred shortly before noon on Friday when a 2002 Chevrolet Malibu sedan, driven by William brooks, turned from the southbound lane of the highway toward East Main Street and crossed into the path of a northbound 1994 Jeep Wrangler driven by Michael Shane Stubblefield, 28, Rogersville.
The Jeep struck the Brooks' vehicle in the right passenger door, causing extensive damage to the car.
McElhaney's report states the force of the impact caused the car to spin in the roadway and then came to a stop as it made contact with the left front fender of a 1996 Ford truck, driven by Edward Cope. Cope's vehicle was attempting to travel from East Main Street onto the highway. The report also notes that all the individuals involved in the accident were wearing restraining devices except for the passenger in the Jeep, Jerry Stubblefield, age 59.
Traffic was halted on the highway for a time so that a Wings medical helicopter could land at the accident scene.
Both Michael and Jerry Stubblefield were transported to Wellmont Holston Valley Medical Center for treatment. Both men have been discharged, a hospital representative said.
