KINGSPORT — Kingsport police have identified the man killed in Sunday's crash as Charles Murray, 51, of 261 Butchertown Road Fall Branch.

The driver of the vehicle has been identified as Melissa Kennedy, 39, of the same residence. She was transported from the crash to Holston Valley Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

An investigation is continuing with charges pending.


Earlier report:

KINGSPORT — One person was killed and another injured Sunday evening in a single-vehicle rollover accident that occurred around 6 p.m. on John B. Dennis Highway near the Moreland Drive intersection.

Kingsport Police Department accident reconstructionist Dale Farmer said a Mazda pickup with a female driver and a male passenger were southbound on John B. Dennis at a high rate of speed when the truck went into the median just past the Moreland Drive intersection.

The truck traveled in the median about 200 feet, came back out at a hard right, and rolled at least one time, ejecting the male passenger, according to Farmer.
