Arkansas State Police Trooper 1st Class Ault investigated a single vehicle crash on Mountain Pine Road at the Mountain Pine Corner Store.
Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol Deputies began investigating this crash, but ultimately turned it over to state police.
Witnesses at the scene stated that when 911 personnel began to arrive, the injured female witness had made it back up to the pavement. As she began dealing with the deputy sheriff, a pistol allegedly fell from her person onto the ground. She was put onto a stretcher and placed into an ambulance. A second pistol was also located inside the wreckage.
The driver was trapped inside the truck. Piney Fire Troops quickly arrived and worked to get the driver free. He was placed on a backboard, carried up the embankment and placed into an ambulance. Both patients were taken to the hospital by ambulance. 1 of the injuries being treated was a possible gunshot wound.
Evidence at the scene showed that the vehicle was traveling west on Glazypeau Road when it completely blew through the stop sign at the Mountain Pine Road “T” intersection, exited the south edge of Mountain Pine Road, traveled down an embankment, entered a creek and slammed head-on into a tree. The vehicle came to final rest in the creek.
Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately an hour.
