2 in hospital after man run over outside Danforth bar

Two men in their 30s are in hospital after a man was run over by a car outside an east-end bar.

Police say an altercation started inside the bar on Danforth Road between Kennedy Road and St. Clair Avenue around 2 a.m. Saturday and spilled out onto the street.

A man then got into a vehicle and ran over another man standing outside the bar. Police believe the man run over by the vehicle was not involved in the altercation.

Police say a third person, seeing what happened, pulled the driver from the vehicle and assaulted him before fleeing the area.

Both the driver and the man run over were rushed to hospital with serious injuries.

Police say they are searching for the person who assaulted the driver. No suspect description has been released.

No charges have been laid at this time, but police say they will be investigating whether or not the driver was impaired at the time of the incident.
