Update: Stuart M. Irby downgraded to critical

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - An update on that car crash on Old Canton Road on February 11 that killed two doctors. University Medical Center tells us Stuart M. Irby's condition has been downgraded from serious to critical.

Mr. Irby was a passenger in the 2008 Mercedes driven by his wife Karen. She remains in fair condition.

Dr. Mark Pogue of Brandon and his fiancee, Dr. Lisa Dedousis of New Jersey, died when the Chevy truck they were riding in was hit by the Mercedes. Dr. Pogue was a third-year resident at U.M.C., working at the West Jackson Family Medical Clinic.

Flowers have been placed at the site of the accident as a makeshift memorial. Earlier this week, police reconstructed the wreck.

Reports have surfaced that portions of the toxicology tests are in possession of Jackson Police. But JPD Lieutenant Jeffrey Scott tells us the results will not be released in bits and pieces. All of the evidence will be packaged and turned over to a Hinds County Grand Jury.
