I have a table containing the following

  Acct #       Collection Date/Time       Result Date/Time       Clinical Event
000005        1/1/2014 00:10:00           1/1/2014 00:42:00     Troponin-T
000005        1/1/2014 00:15:00           1/1/2014 00:20:00     Troponin-I
000005        1/1/2014 01:30:00           1/1/2014 02:10:00     Troponin-T
001002        1/3/2014 23:59:00           1/4/2014 00:45:00     Troponin-T
001002        1/4/2014 05:20:00           1/4/2014 05:25:00     Troponin-I

I need a query that would pull the entire record with the earliest result time for each account.  

For Acct # 0005, I need the record with result date/time of 1/1/2014 00:20:00 (2nd rec)
For Acct # 1002, I need the record with result date/time of 1/4/2014 00:45:00 (4th rec)
