A family of three from Wisconsin was reportedly trapped under a boat last Friday outside a Bass Pro Shops store in Nashville, Tenn., after a vehicle drove into the vessel.

"[I] just walked inside and heard a crash. I turned around and saw the boat bouncing," witness Tom Schirr told WSMV-TV.

"He hit the boat at a pretty high rate of speed and the boat went up in the air," Nashville Metro Police spokeswoman Kris Mumford said.
