A Christmas parade is in full swing in a town in Wisconsin, USA.
But a red SUV is driving by the celebration procession.
Passing by a small child, the car crashed into the procession and rushed right into it.
The village festival held for the first time in two years due to COVID-19 quickly became a mess.
