KINSTON, N.C. (WITN) - A civilian employee of the Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office was struck and killed while crossing the street next to the courthouse this morning.

Kinston police said it happened just before 8:00 a.m. on East King Street.

Sue Williams, who was 62-years-old, died later at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.

The vehicle’s driver was not injured and has not been charged. Police say their investigation is continuing.

Sheriff Ronnie Ingram says Williams was a records processing assistant and had worked for them since 2004.

Ingram says the tragedy has taken a great toll on their staff “and I ask for your prayers for the Williams family and her Sheriff’s Office family.”
