Huntsville - A food vendor at a country music concert is accused of starting a fight and hitting several people with his SUV, killing one.

The Scott County Sherriff's Office tells WBIR-TV that Bill Jason Carson was intoxicated and started the fight near singer Trace Adkins' concert on Saturday night. Officials say Carson then got in his Toyota 4-Runner with a gun and started spinning the SUV.

Witnesses say Carson hit an ATV and another car and ran over four men. One died at the scene. Two were airlifted to a hospital.

Officials say a Jeep rammed into Carson's SUV to stop him, and security staff detained him.

Carson is charged with homicide and felony reckless endangerment.

The sheriff's office didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press to find out whether Carson had a lawyer who could comment on the case.
