Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
Drilling out or otherwise damaging the trunk lock cylinder or trunk lid are options to get it open and retrieve the key, but you would be better off contacting a locksmith. A locksmith or dealer should be able to cut a key using the VIN along with proof of ownership. This would be cheaper and easier than damaging the trunk lid or lock cylinder and having to replace parts.
