Walker man arrested after running over a pedestrian

A Walker man is in custody after a hit and run crash involving a pedestrian.

According to a release from Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch, deputies responded to the Orton’s Y Mart in rural Walker Wednesday afternoon and found several people providing medical care to a 60-year-old Walker man who had been run over in the parking lot.

The man was transported to the Fargo hospital with serious life-threatening injuries.

Deputies quickly found the vehicle and arrested the driver, 48-year-old Merrill Cloud of Walker.

Cloud is facing numerous charges, and alcohol is believed to be a factor in this incident.

North Memorial Ambulance and North Memorial Air Care assisted at the scene.
