GENERAL NARRATIVE
On December 6, 2018, a woman reported her debit card stolen to the Kingsport Police Department. She told Officers that she had just realized that she had mistakenly left it behind the previous day (December 5, 2018), sitting on top of the air pump at the Food City Gas ‘N Go, located at 500 West Center Street in Kingsport.

Her debit card was apparently soon “found” by an individual who proceeded to unlawfully use it to make three fraudulent transactions at the adjacent Food City grocery store, located at 300 Clinchfield Street, and another fraudulent transaction at the nearby Burger King, located at 315 Clinchfield Street.

A white male suspect was captured on surveillance video during the transaction at Burger King. A photo of the suspect, taken from that footage, has been included in this release.

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Kingsport Police Investigating Fatal Crash on I-81
DATE: December 29, 2018
CASE #: 18-034384
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On December 29, 2018 at approximately 6:30 PM, Kingsport Police Patrol Officers responded to a motor vehicle collision on Interstate 81 near exit 59 (Colonial Heights/Fort Henry Drive) in Kingsport. Due to the seriousness of injuries sustained in the collision, Crash Reconstructionists from the K.P.D. Traffic Unit were called to the scene. Their subsequent investigation revealed the following:

A 2015 Hyundai Elantra, driven and solely occupied by Sherry D. Gregg, was northbound on Interstate 81, when for unknown reasons, the vehicle swerved off of the left side of the roadway and entered the median. The vehicle struck the cable barrier and reentered the roadway, coming to rest sideways in the northbound traffic lanes.

Meanwhile, a 2019 Honda Odyssey, driven by Peter Alexander Pham and occupied by four additional passengers, was also northbound on Interstate 81, and traveling behind the Hyundai. Mr. Pham was unable to see the disabled vehicle ahead of him in sufficient time to stop his own vehicle and struck the Hyundai in the driver’s side.

Ms. Gregg was killed in the crash. Mr. Pham and one of his passengers were transported by Sullivan County EMS to an area medical facility for precautionary evaluation of possible (non-life threatening) injuries. The other three passengers in the Honda appeared uninjured.

This crash remains under active investigation by the K.P.D. Traffic Unit. As such, no additional details are available for release at this time.

KPD e-News Release: K.P.D. Increasing Impaired-Driving Enforcement During Christmas and New Year’s Day Holiday Season

Kingsport Police Department

David Quillin, Chief of Police

200 Shelby Street • Kingsport, TN 37660

http://Police.KingsportTN.govwww.KingsportPDBlog.com

NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. Increasing Impaired-Driving Enforcement During Christmas and New Year’s Day Holiday Season
DATE: December 17, 2018
GENERAL NARRATIVE
The Kingsport Police Department is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) to increase impaired-driving enforcement from December 14, 2018 through January 1, 2019, surrounding the Christmas and New Year’s Day holiday season. The THSO’s statewide “Booze It and Lose It” campaign is part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” nationwide mobilization.

The Kingsport Police Department continues to stress that Tennessee D.U.I. laws apply not just to alcohol, but to any substance that impairs the ability to drive, including illegal drugs, over-the-counter (OTC) medications, as well as prescription drugs, even if they are prescribed by a physician.

Increased state and national messaging about the dangers of drunk driving, coupled with increased sobriety checkpoints and high visibility enforcement at the local level, aim to drastically reduce the number of drunk-driving crashes, injuries, and fatalities this year.

“We ask all Tennesseans to please drive safely this holiday season,” said THSO Director Vic Donoho. “Our state and local law enforcement partners will be out in full force to secure Tennessee roadways. We want everyone to make it home safely, so please designate a sober driver.”

Beyond the risk of serious injury or death associated with impaired driving, being convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs can negatively impact an offender’s life in many ways. Consequences could include the loss of employment, prevention of employment in certain jobs, significantly higher insurance rates, serious financial setbacks due to costly fines, court costs, and legal fees, personal and family embarrassment, the installation of an ignition interlock device in the offender’s vehicle, and mandatory jail time.

The THSO provides grant funding to support the Kingsport Police Department’s increased enforcement efforts during the Booze It and Lose It holiday campaign. For more information about the THSO, please visit www.TNTrafficSafety.org. For more information about the NHTSA, please visit www.NHTSA.gov.
