All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

Garland County Sheriff’s National Park College School Resource Deputy Navra called into GCSO Dispatch yesterday and advised that he was after a truck that just crashed into a utility pole around the 500 block of Marion Anderson Road.  The utility pole snapped in 2 pieces and wires came down from where they were supposed to be.

Lloyd’s Auto Sales wants to help you rebuild your credit. Let us get you financed right here in Hot Springs, where we serve all of Arkansas.

Evidence at the scene included a snapped pole and downed utility lines.  The suspect vehicle was found and followed to the Shell Gas Station on Adcock Road.  At least 100 places to pull over were passed up between the crash scene and the gas station.  Dep. Navra detained the driver for Arkansas State Trooper Wingo, who was investigating the non-injury crash.

Evidence on the vehicle included a busted front end and a bent, metal driver door frame that prevented that door from being closed.  The driver was issued at least 1 citation and the vehicle was towed from the gas station.

Other sheriff’s patrol units and 70 West Fire & Rescue Troops blocked Marion Anderson Road from Walkway Drive to Glade Divide Road as a safety precaution.  Entergy arrived quickly and went to work fixing the situation with the pole.

Some people may have been without power for a short period during this operation.
