According to the Kingsport Police Department, the collision took place shortly before 11 p.m. on Sunday on West Stone Drive near Fairmont Avenue. Police say Paula Collier was operating a motorized, mobility chair that she had borrowed from an acquaintance, attempting to cross Stone Drive in a north to south direction.
At that time, Collier traveled into the path of a white, four-door Honda Accord driven by a 17-year-old girl from Mount Carmel. Police report Collier was killed in the crash; the driver of the Honda was not injured. Our partners at the Kingsport Times News have more.
