Police are investigating how a Kingsport man was run over by a car in his driveway early Friday morning, incurring serious injuries to the head and one arm.

It occurred shortly after midnight at 2106 Millye Street. Kingsport Police Officer Dale Farmer says the resident, Donald Vest, 54, was being dropped off by Michael Barrett, 53, of Avoca Road in Bristol, Tenn.

The men had reportedly met just hours earlier at a bar on John B. Dennis Highway. A third man was also reportedly in Barrett's Honda Accord, with Barrett letting he and Vest out at the home.
