Witnesses say White was hit by a utility vehicle that was being driven ahead of the Cat Walk. After the injury, witnesses say, White could be seen staggering and bleeding from his head. White was injured while photographing the UK marching band.

After the incident, White was taken to the UK hospital to be evaluated, said UK spokesperson Tony Neely.
