Marcus Dorsey, 39.

A 20-year-old woman was severely injured Thursday afternoon when she was hit by a truck driving through a Target parking lot in Bryant, police said.

Bryant Police Department Sgt. Todd Crowson said Marcus Dorsey, 39, had hit two vehicles with a U-Haul truck while he was westbound on Interstate 30.

Dorsey then took the Alcoa Road exit and drove through the Alcoa Exchange shopping center at a “speed too fast for parking lots," Crowson said.

Police were not pursuing the driver when he exited off the interstate, Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said, but an Arkansas State Trooper spotted Dorsey as he was driving through the lot.

The woman was walking toward the store around 1:15 p.m., when Dorsey struck her with his truck and kept driving, officials said.

“A Target employee saw this happen and followed [Dorsey] into the Greens at Hurricane Creek apartment complex,” Crowson said.

The apartment complex is located at 5100 Hurricane Drive, next to the shopping center.

Dorsey was taken into custody by the Bryant Police Department and is being charged with first-degree battery and leaving the scene of an accident with injury, Crowson said. More charges may be forthcoming.

The woman was medflighted to a hospital for treatment of her injuries. Her condition was not immediately known as of Thursday afternoon.
