KINGSPORT — A Kingsport man has been arrested after allegedly driving drunk and crashing his car, ejecting a passenger.

Records at the Kingsport Police Department say the wreck occurred early Sunday morning on Industry Drive. A 2001 Audi S4 driven by Khalid Abdul Aziz, 40, of 1238 Willow Street, was westbound near Wheatley Street and reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed.

Police say Aziz lost control of the car, which contained three passengers, and exited the left side of the roadway. It struck a guardrail and fence, reentered the road traveling backwards, then struck the rail and fence again.
