Video Shows Car Plunge 7 Stories Off Parking Garage, Narrowly Miss SUV

A BMW plunged 7 stories from a Texas garage last month and crashed front-first into the alley below.

In the video, a Chevrolet Tahoe is seen trying to turn around in the alley.

The impact of the crash sent the BMW bouncing off the back of the Tahoe before it comes to a rest on its roof.

Austin Police released shocking CCTV footage of the July 13 incident on Thursday.

"My window was down and I heard something really loud and abnormal, so I just started driving forward and the vehicle landed on the backside of the Tahoe", William Burch said. Authorities said the woman was seriously injured.

In September a 23-year-old man accidentally drove off the garage's top level however his vehicle miraculously dangled for several minutes and he managed to escape, Dallas News reports. Amazingly, both drivers in the BMW and SUV were OK.

Surveillance video shows the auto hit the pavement after a seven-storey plunge from a downtown parking garage and striking another vehicle as it lands in the alley.

GTT Parking, the garage's owner, said a similar incident happened in September 2016 in the same garage, but on a different floor in which no one was hurt. The garage is now looking at redesigning its entire cable system.
