Beaufort Police responded to a crash and allegedly found heroin in a wrecked vehicle.

The wreck -- which happened Friday -- involved a man and a 14-year-old passenger.

Investigators said surveillance video from a nearby store shows 21-year-old Donovan Crumbacker's car crashing into a Nissan truck on the 500 block of Front St. and knocking over a light pole.

Police said they searched his car and found drug paraphernalia including heroin as well as hypodermic needles.

Crumbacker will face three drug-related charges as well as a careless and reckless driving charge.

The 14-year-old was transported to Carteret General Hospital.
