Kingsport woman killed in Hawkins County wreck

ROGERSVILLE — A Kingsport woman was killed Monday morning in a single vehicle roll-over accident that occurred on Beech Creek Road south of Rogersville.

 According to a report filed by Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper David Good,  Ellen M. Bernard, 47, of Kingsport, was driving south on Beech Creek Road around 11:15 a.m. when she failed to negotiate a curve.

 Good said the 1999 Oldsmobile Bernard was driving traveled off the right side of the two-lane road, overcorrected, and then traveled back across the road. The vehicle then went off the left side of the highway and struck a private driveway, which caused the vehicle to roll.

 Bernard wasn’t wearing a seat belt, and Good stated in his report that it would have made a difference.

Bernard was the lone occupant of the vehicle.
