An 83-year-old Kingsport woman was killed Monday after reportedly stepping in front of a vehicle on Fairview Avenue.


The incident occurred shortly before noon Monday at a Kingsport Area Transit System bus stop. Kingsport Police Officer Dale Farmer said Leatrice Jeanette Ormond, of 1000 Stonegate Road, had just exited a KATS bus and was attempting to cross the street to get to Walgreens.

Emergency personnel performed CPR on the woman at the scene before she was transported to Hoslton Valley Medical Center, where she later died. Police say an investigation is continuing but no charges are expected to be placed in the incident.
