CASE #: 22-001907
On February 2, 2022 at approximately 5:00 AM Kingsport Police Patrol Officers responded to a hit and run crash at Eastman Credit Union, located at 4325 West Stone Drive in Kingsport. Upon arrival, it was determined that a vehicle had been driven over the curb, through the landscaping, and into the building, causing extensive damage. The driver and vehicle left the scene prior to police arrival.

Further investigation revealed video surveillance footage showing both the driver and the vehicle at a nearby business just prior to the crash. The driver appears to be a slim white female adult with blonde hair and glasses. The vehicle appears to be a white Jeep Liberty or similarly styled sport utility vehicle and should have significant damage. Photos taken from that surveillance footage have been included in this release.

Anyone who recognizes either the driver or the vehicle is asked to contact Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.
