A pedestrian struck by a police vehicle Tuesday night on Baseline Road has died of the injuries. She's been identified by police as Rebecca Badenhop, 28, of Camden, Tenn.

Little Rock police are not releasing the name of an officer who struck her  about 7 p.m. because he was involved in an ongoing undercover investigation.

The officer was driving a police Ford Explorer Interceptor eastbound in the 8800 block of Baseline and nearing a traffic light when he struck the womannear the entrance to a Walmart. She died this morning, a police release said.

The release said the fatality remains under investigation. The accident report said drug and alcohol use were not suspected as factors. The officer has been placed on leave.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
