Police: Woman Was Huffing Behind The Wheel In Kinston

A building being renovated to be a church now has a lot of clean up after a car crashed into it Wednesday afternoon.

Police say 24-year-old Krystal Jones was "huffing," or inhaling toxic vapors from an aerosol can, when she crashed into a building in Kinston Wednesday. Jones crashed into what used to be the Family Pet Shop on West Vernon Avenue.

Jail records show Jones was still locked up under a $1,000 bond. Police say she's charged with careless and reckless driving, driving left of the center line and for inhaling toxic vapors. Officers say she can not be charged with DWI because it is an instant high and goes away quickly so there is no way to test for it.

    I just cannot believe how rude & cruel people really are. For all of you with your uncallled for comments - no one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes in life - everyone goes thru hard times. I feel sorry for her family. I hope & pray she can get help & rise above this. For all of you rude & heartless people - you need to look at yourself & think about what you would do if this happened to someone you loved. I am glad she is alive. We were not put on this earth to judge people. Remember that..........

      If someone I loved was doing this, I'd be the first in line to tell them how incredibly stupid and irresponsible they were. I wouldn't hold their hand, enable their behavior, make excuses, blame someone else, or defend them. Perhaps you weren't put on this Earth to judge, but it's the responsibility of our society to judge peoples' actions in order to establish acceptable norms and foster socially constructive behavior. Life isn't a free-for-all contest to the end, and if she loved anyone, she wouldn't be acting in such a selfish and destructive manner.

        You are right. She didn't make a mistake. She made a choice.

    So much for this story. "New Law Tracking Main Meth Ingredient Already Successful". Now we'll have to have an ID to buy spray paint, bug spray, hair spray, CANNED AIR TO CLEAN OUR COMPUTERS WITH. When will the madness stop? NEVER! Because those bleeding hearts out there want everyone to have eveything and not be responsible for what they do. Put that one behind bars for live....just for being stupid.

    Lets hope the legislature moves quickly to pass anti huffing and driving legislation...

    Dust Off is very dangerous if abused. It is cheap and a quick high. People use it for many things but a lot of people use it to clean the dust from the keyboard of their computer. If you have it in your house and find it missing, beware. It is not just teenagers abusing it but adults as well. It is very cheap and a quick high. What is most important is that it will kill you!

      Huffing also results in the most "first time use" deaths when compared to other abused substances. The percentage is incredible- I've read as many as 1 in 10 first time users develop potentially fatal cardiac/pulmonary reactions to the chemicals. And the high only lasts a few seconds to a few minutes.

    What do you call a blond huffing in a crashed volkswagon in Lenoir County. Far from thinking.. Maybe she will be in their VW next commercial.
