All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.
Arkansas State Police Trooper Robbins was on patrol yesterday evening around 6PM in the area of Marion Anderson Road on Highway 70 West when he attempted to stop a grey Range Rover SUV that was allegedly running a license plate that belonged on a different vehicle. He turned on the blue lights and the SUV allegedly fled from him.
The short lived pursuit made it’s way approximately a mile or so to Worthey Trail, where Trp. Robbins put the PIT (Pursuit Intervention Technique) on the unsuspecting suspect. Trp. Robbins positioned his vehicle so as to touch the rear bumper of the fleeing SUV. He showed the suspect what he learned at Troop School by spinning the SUV out of control and off the road.
The SUV departed the right side of the pavement (sideways), continued to rotate Westbound through the grassy roadside, rode an embankment for a short distance, came back down the embankment, slammed head on into an intersection culvert, hopped back onto the highway (missing a front wheel assembly) and came to final rest in the Highway 70 West/Worthey Trail Intersection. Damage to the trooper car appeared to be rub and scratch marks on the PIT bumper. It may have had a little bend to it as well…., but then again, maybe not.
Trp. Robbins jumped out and arrested the suspect. But, the suspect was injured and trapped in the wreckage (the driver’s door would not open). So, he put the female suspect on house arrest right there in the driver’s seat until the Jaws of Life arrived.
The Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol and a Hot Springs Police Detective arrived quickly to assist.
70 West Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly. They took charge of traffic control and went to work on cutting the suspect from the wreckage. They got her out in short order. Then, tended to fluid clean-up and assisted with debris clean-up duties.
LifeNet dispatched an Ambulance Crew to the scene. They transported the injured suspect to the hospital by ambulance.
Holcomb’s Transport & Recovery took charge of and removed the wreckage from the scene.
Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 1 hour.
Hayley Renhea Hollingsworth, 26, of Phadral Point in Garland County, was released from the hospital same day and transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. She is charged with Felony Fleeing, Felony Theft By Receiving, Failure To Appear x3 and a hold for Oklahoma has been placed. Her bond amount totals $50,000.
