Josh Berry with KARK/Fox 16 reports that the Benton woman injured by a hit-and-run vehicle in the Target parking lot in Bryant has died.

The 20-year-old woman, Heather Danielle Baker, was struck Thursday afternoon while walking in the parking lot. A store employee followed the pickup to an apartment, where police arrested Marcus Dorsey, 39. Police say his vehicle hit at least two other vehicles on Interstate 30 before exiting the freeway and speeding across the Target lot.

Dorsey was charged originally with battery and leaving the scene of an accident.

He now faces a murder charge and multiple counts of leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a suspended license. KATV reports from a preliminary hearing this morning that Dorsey had told police he used "sherm" and alcohol before the incident. Sherm is generally used as a term for marijuana cigarettes dipped in the drug PCP.

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
