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.

  • Trump unfit

    Even as an oligarch, President Trump turns out to be breathtakingly incompetent. Is there any reason to suppose he's even loyal to the United States? Does he even understand the concept? Trump is loyal to Trump, and to his absurdly swollen ego. Nothing and nobody else.

  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
