Two local men were seriously injured when their pickup truck
left the road and struck a tree near Cotton Patch on State
Highway 38 early Monday morning Woodruff County deputy
Dovey Snyder reported the accident shortly after midnight
Monday. Thurston Poole, 33, of Des Arc and Billy Ray Wallis,
38, of Little Rock are listed in serious condition at Baptist
Medical Center. The accident occurred as the two men were
returning to Des Arc after a frog-gigging trip. On an overcast
Sunday night, Poole's pick-up truck headlights malfunctioned.
The two men concluded that the headlight fuse on the older
model truck had burned out. As a replacement fuse was not
available, Wallis noticed that the 22-caliber bullet from his
pistol fit perfectly into the fuse box next to the steering wheel
column. After inserting the bullet, the headlights again began
to operate properly and the two men proceeded toward the
White River Bridge. After traveling about 20 miles and just
before crossing the river, the bullet apparently overheated,
discharged and struck Poole in the right testicle. The vehicle
swerved sharply right exiting the pavement and striking a tree.
Poole suffered only minor cuts and abrasions from the
accident, but will require surgery to repair the other wound.
Wallis sustained a broken clavicle and was treated and

"Thank God we weren't on that bridge when Thurston shot
his balls off or we might both be dead" stated Wallis.

"I've been a trooper for ten years in this part of the world,
but this is a first for me. I can't believe that those two would
admit how this accident happened," said Snyder.
Upon being notified of the wreck, Lavinia, Poole's wife asked
how many frogs the boys had caught and did anyone get
them from the truck. (Way to go, Lavinia.)
