A 22-year-old Michigan man suffered serious injuries Thursday after he fell off a party bus and was run over by it in Tennessee’s capital city – weeks after .
The man, who ended up in the hospital, fell off the bus just after midnight on Nashville’s Lower Broadway and was run over by the vehicle’s rear tires, authorities said. He was sitting on the railing of the roofless party bus, fell off the railing and landed face-first on the roadway, a police spokesman said.
The man’s condition was not immediately known Thursday afternoon, but Metro Nashville Police Department spokesman Don Aaron said the man’s injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
Butch Spryidon, president and CEO of Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp., said the accident should prompt “an immediate call to action” for local tourism officials.
