One killed in Bloomingdale car crash


A Friday morning fatal crash outside of Kingsport is under investigation.

A report from the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office said officers responded to the Bloomingdale community just after 9 a.m. following a single-vehicle wreck.

A preliminary investigation indicates the vehicle operated by a female driver was at the intersection of Forrest View Road and Myron Street when the car left the roadway, went down an embankment, struck a utility pole and came to rest in a creek.

The driver later died at an area hospital. The name of the victim was not released.
