MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WTVF) — A motorcycle rider is recovering after a scary crash this weekend that pinned him under an SUV.

But luckily for that rider, bystanders saw what happened.

"Some of our employees, they were grabbing jacks and getting the car up, he ran next door to Home Depot, got some blocks," said Reese Dixon of Jack Split Axe Throwing.

"I went and grabbed a shopping cart, we threw blocks in there, some other threw blocks in and we were jacking it up, just to make sure if the jack got hit it wouldn’t drop again," said Mike Dixon.

Murfreesboro Rescue crews arrived within just minutes — and say what the group of bystanders did for the man trapped beneath the SUV, likely saved his life.

Mike and Reese say they’ve been told the victim will now make a full recovery.
