CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A man is facing drunken driving and assault charges after a crash overnight in east Charlotte.

Police say 25-year-old Tony Salango's car hit a tree on Commonwealth Avenue near Morningside Drive, flipped and then landed on its top.

Police charged Salango with driving while intoxicated and assault on a female because, officers say, he punched his passenger as he was being taken out of the car.

Both were taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
