Among reports recently released by the Conway Police Department:

•Careless and prohibited driving, Prince Street.

A Morrilton man was arrested early Wednesday morning for careless and prohibited driving, no proof of insurance and not wearing a seatbelt after his vehicle hit a concrete barrier, flipped on its hood and caught fire.

Police arrived at the intersection of Prince Street and Morningside Drive around 2:17 a.m. and observed a green 2000 Hyundai Elantra, which was eastbound, on its top and on fire in the roundabout.

The driver, 25, was found lying on the side of the street, his hands and face covered in blood. Officers noted an immediate odor of alcohol upon contact with the man.

Another man, identified as a 42-year-old Morrilton man, was located on the sidewalk also covered in blood.

After notifying MEMS and the Conway Fire Department, officers approached the vehicle to check for other passengers. While officers searched the vehicle, the driver approached the vehicle.

Police informed the man to return to the sidewalk. Upon their request, officers said the man became agitated and stated he was a volunteer fireman.

Officers asked the man again to return to the sidewalk, at which point he began to cry and told the officers they should "just let him burn," the police report states.

After verifying no other passengers were in the vehicle, officers physically removed the driver from the area, despite his efforts to refuse.

The driver was transported to the Conway Regional Medical Center for treatment. While there, blood was drawn to test the man’s blood alcohol content. Results of the blood test were not included in the police report, and driving while intoxicated was not listed as one of the arresting charges.

Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $2,500 in the accident report.
