A Madisonville man was arrested at 5 p.m. Monday on Grapevine Road in Crofton after allegedly hitting a four-wheeler with his vehicle, according to a Christian County Sheriff's report.

Deputies were called to a home on Grapevine Road in reference to a collision involving a vehicle and a four-wheeler, the report stated.

When deputies arrived, they met with Dillion J. Miller, 29, Madisonville, who told deputies he accidentally ran into the four-wheeler after the four-wheeler created dust on a gravel road and he was not able to see it.

However, the party that was on the four-wheeler told deputies that Miller flagged them down on the road and told them they were on his private property. The party then told Miller it was a county road, and a verbal argument began.

The victims started to leave the scene when Miller allegedly drove into the four-wheeler with the passenger side of the vehicle. One of the victims was taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center to be examined.

Deputies found fresh damage and circular tire marks on the passenger side door of Miller's vehicle.

Miller was arrested and charged with first-degree wanton endangerment.
