Manipulate graphs with graphics


Hi guys. 

How do you plot a graph (parametric, in my case) and a graphic (arrow, as vector) in one "window" of manipulate? 

I'm trying to plot a clotoide with vector of velocity and acceleration... 

Here's what I've got so far:

Manipulating the arrow by itself:
Manipulate[
 Graphics[{Red, 
   Arrow[{{Part[First[R[t]], 1], 
      Part[Last[R[t]], 1]}, {Part[First[R''[t]], 1], 
      Part[Last[R''[t]], 1]}}]}], {t, 0, 5}] 

Manipulating the clotoide by itself (R[t] is the x and y's of the clotide):
Manipulate[
 ParametricPlot[R[t], {t, 0, t}, PlotRange -> {-3, 3}], {t, 0.001, 4}]


How do I COMBINE those two?!


Thanks in advande
