A man was arrested on drug charges following an accident Wednesday morning.
The accident involving two vehicles on North Washington at the Cypress Street intersection was reported at 8:45 a.m. to the Bastrop Police Department. The first driver, a woman, was transported to Morehouse General Hospital by Med Life. Officers on the scene reported that she did not appear to be seriously injured.
Witnesses saw the other driver walk alongside a vacant building carrying a bag containing a white substance. The man later identified as Stephen Williams, 925 Crouch St., was then reportedly seen stomping something into the ground. The substance was discovered by officers to be cocaine and Williams was arrested on charges of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and obstruction of justice.
The crash still remains under investigation.
