KINGSPORT — Police said a woman who was ejected from a Jeep in a single-vehicle rollover accident Sunday evening on I-81 was “battling” for her life Sunday night.

The southbound lanes of Interstate 81 were closed at the I-26 interchange in Kingsport while the Jeep’s passenger — identified as Brenda Fatherree, 47, of Johnson City — was flown to Holston Valley Medical Center via rescue helicopter.

The driver of the Jeep, Albert Fatherree III, 49, of Johnson City, was not ejected and was taken to HVMC via ambulance.
