    BRISTOL — A Middlebury man was injured after falling off a bar stool attached to a go-kart frame with a small Honda engine Wednesday evening.

    James Kleckner, 53, was riding the motorized bar stool/go-kart apparatus south on Rachael Court north of York Hills Drive around 5 p.m. when he completed a curve and then accelerated on a straight, flat section of roadway, according to a press release from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department.

    Kleckner lost control of the “vehicle” and fell off.

    He was taken to the hospital with a bruise on his head, scrapes on his arms and minor bleeding. He was not wearing a helmet.

    He had consumed alcohol prior to the incident, according police, but was not found to be intoxicated. He was not cited.
