One man was in the hospital Saturday after a crashing a four wheeler in Noble County on Friday night, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources reports.

The victim, Jeffrey C. Gallup, 39, of Wolcottville, was driving a Kawasaki 450R four wheeler on the road in the 3900 block of County Road 1150 North at 9:58 p.m. on Friday when the machine overturned, causing him to fall out of it.
