MILWAUKEE, April 6 (UPI) -- A man dressed as a sausage for the Opening Day Klement's Racing Sausages relay in Milwaukee said he was not seriously injured in a collision with a motorcycle.
Kevin Carboni, of La Crosse, Wis., said he was running in the sausage relay from the Klement's factory to Miller Park for the event celebrating the Milwaukee Brewers' season opener Monday and was struck by a police motorcycle when he attempted to high five some spectators at the side of the road, the La Crosse Tribune reported Tuesday.
"It looks a lot worse than it is," Carboni said of video footage of the incident. "It must be that tough Klement's casing."
Carboni said his foot and leg were hurt a little, but he was able to finish his part of the relay.
"I've taken harder falls in Hixon Forest," Carboni said.
He said the incident has not soured him on the sausage relay.
"I'd do it again in a second," he said. "Without the motorcycle, of course."
