McCracken County Deputies say 49-year-old Robolfo Cordoba was driving on Gholson Road and made a left turn onto Blandville Road, pulling in front of 27-year-old Steven Patterson.
Patterson could not stop in time and hit the side of the trailer. Cordoba then drove away.
Ballard County Deputies found the trailer on highway 286 and arrested Cordoba for leaving the scene of an accident and failure to render aid or assistance. He was taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail.
Patterson and his passenger, 36-year-old Michael Jones, were taken to a local hospital to get their injuries treated.
