An elderly couple were critically injured in a crash in Joshua Tree Saturday afternoon. About 1:10, Velma Ringwald, 58, of Twentynine Palms was stopped at the southbound stop sign at Sun Ray Road and Highway 62, when she pulled out directly into the path of a bread delivery truck driven by Wallace Schempp, 61, of Desert Hot Springs, who was driving westbound on the highway. Schempp hit his brakes and tried to avoid hitting Ringwald’s 2006 Toyota Camry, but was unable to avoid a collision. Velma Ringwald and her passenger, Clarence Nolan, 83, of Twentynine Palms, suffered major injuries and were taken to Desert Hospital in Palm Springs. Wallace Schempp was uninjured.
