Tampa Bay Rays reliever Joel Peralta suffered perhaps the world's first documented sandwich-related injury on Tuesday morning when he hurt his neck ducking out of his Camaro while stopping for sandwiches.

Though certain sandwiches present choking hazards, eating too many sandwiches might cause long-term health issues, and very heavy sandwiches could theoretically be used as weapons if wrapped tightly enough, empirical research shows the overwhelming majority of sandwiches produced in the domestic U.S. are purchased and consumed without incident or injury.

Presumably, then, the actual culprit in Peralta's case is not the sandwiches but the Camaro. Camaros, like most cars, are generally considered more dangerous than sandwiches.

The upside for Peralta is that he did eventually eat the sandwiches, and the sandwiches were good, according to the diligent reporting of Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Peralta suggested he won't miss much time, but the severity of his injury is currently unclear, as are the contents of the sandwiches in question.

Until Peralta discloses the full details of his injury, fans and media in the Port Charlotte, Fla. area will not know where to acquire these good but potentially harmful sandwiches.
