A Rogersville woman was killed and a man was injured Nov. 29 in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 11E near the Jonesborough Flea Market.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol reported Thursday that Myrna Cannon, 61, died in the crash at the intersection of Telford Road. Christopher Ricker, 49, Greenville, was injured.

The THP said Lisa Brown, 48, Greenville was southbound on 11E in a Chevrolet Equinox with Cannon and Ricker as passengers. A Lincoln MKZ driven by Deborah Myers, 59, Johnson City, rear-ended Brown’s vehicle. The Equinox spun around, left the road over an embankment, flipped and landed against a tree.

Charges were pending against Myers, who was not injured.
