The car continued to drive on the road while the man was lying on the street. A woman from the same Pedal Tavern approached the man to make sure he was in good shape.
The man then managed to get back up and wave to the woman that he was okay as he walked to the sidewalk.

The images were posted to Twitter by @safefunnash, an account promoting safe partying in Nashville.
Music City is known for its party atmosphere, in famous spots like downtown Broadway, which have come in the form of both bars and vehicles.
The party vehicles have come under criticism from the Nashville public who claimed they lack proper safety guidelines.
“My daughter had to see this bull every day as she walked to and from Hume Fogg HS,” tweeted @CalGal3000.
“She heard the party cars coming around the corner outside her classroom during tests.
She stepped on vomit on her way to the train. WTF Nashville.’
Pedal Taverns is one of Nashville’s party vehicles that requires passengers to pedal the portable bar like a bicycle as they drink around town
In July, a 22-year-old Michigan man was injured after falling from a roofless party bus.
After he fell, onlookers watched in horror as the bus’s rear tires rolled over the man’s legs.
The man was found in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
The Nashville Convention & Visitor Corp. cited the incident as a necessity for a crackdown on the parties on wheels.

“While we hope the injured person recovers quickly, we should use this as an immediate call to action,” said Butch Spyridon, president and CEO of the tourism agency.
“Public safety is our number one concern, and unfortunately what we feared would happen has happened. It’s no secret that we are openly concerned about entertainment vehicle behavior. Just like public safety, so is Nashville’s reputation.
“We need music to take center stage again instead of unregulated rolling parties. The hospitality industry and the city are determined to respond to this with meaningful measures.’
The incident also inspired a Change.org petition called “Bring Safety and Common Sense to Nashville’s Party on Wheels.”
The purpose of the petition was to enforce public safety guidelines and updated standards for party vehicles.
The petition has collected 2,296 signatures and held an event on Aug. 26 to protest the Transportation Licensing Commission’s approval of 32 party vehicles and 10 pedal taverns.
