NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A man was taken to the hospital after he was pushed from a vehicle and then run over by a driver in a Nashville parking lot Tuesday night.

The incident occurred at the entrance of the Home 2 Suites hotel in the 1800 block of Division Street just before 9 p.m.

Police told News 2 a man pulled into the entrance and, with the help of another passenger, pushed a man out of the vehicle.

As he drove away, he ran over the man's foot. The driver left the scene immediately.

Witnesses said the man who was shoved from the vehicle was intoxicated, and did not appear to be a guest at the hotel.

It's unclear why the driver pushed him from the vehicle.

Police are still working to determine the identity of the driver.

The victim's identity or condition was not immediately released, but police say his foot had some bruising.

He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment.

No additional information was released.
