– David Nanak of 203 Anderson St., White Hall, told Patrolman Brent Bridges he discovered the rear windows of his two Dodge Caravans had been shattered as he prepared to go to work at 7:30 a.m.

Both vehicles, 2002 and 2007 models, were not damaged at 10 p.m. the preceding day, Nanak told the officer. Nothing was reported taken by the vandals, the report stated.

– An SUV was heavily damaged when the driver lost control of the vehicle on Robin Road south of West Green Oak Lane, Patrolman Bridges wrote in an accident report.

The officer quoted Terrance P. Billings of 109 White Hall Ave. as saying he was southbound and “not paying attention” when the 2002 Ford Escape ran off the roadway, struck a mailbox at 1004 Robin and the end of a driveway before he could stop.

Damage to the SUV was estimated at $5,000.

A pickup truck struck the rear of a trailer being pulled by a second pickup at the intersection of White Hall Avenue and West Street, Patrolman John Zuber said.

The officer quoted Scott Buchanan of 10946 Arkansas 54, Pine Bluff, driver of an eastbound 2004 Ford F-250 pulling a trailer carrying a lawnmower, as saying he had stopped for traffic on West to enter White Hall Avenue so he could turn south on West.

Garrett C. Griffith of 1319 Hart Drive, White Hall, told the officer he was eastbound in a 2003 Chevrolet and could not stop to avoid the collision because of the rain-slick pavement.
