All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.

An Arkansas State Trooper on patrol in the area of the Bypass at Airport Road intended on initiating a traffic stop for some reason on a church van that was traveling east.  The driver of the van allegedly refused to stop and a pursuit was underway.

The chase exited the Bypass at Higdon Ferry Road.  The fleeing van came down the ramp to the intersection, the driver failed to negotiate the intersection.  The van crossed the center line and slammed into a vehicle.  Both vehicles stopped immediately and the suspect was arrested.

Hot Springs Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly and assisted as needed.

LifeNet dispatched 2 Ambulance Crews to the scene.  Both driver’s were transported to the hospital by ambulance.

Traffic flow was interrupted for at least 40 minutes.

Holcomb’s Transport & Recovery took charge of and removed both vehicles from the scene.

GCSO Deputies went to Harvey’s Chapel Church on Mountain Pine Road and discovered that that location had just been burglarized.  They had the driver of the stolen van fingered as suspect #1 and started their investigation into the church burglary with him.
