Video: BMW falls seven stories

  • 0

AUSTIN, TX (KXAN/CNN) - Shocking footage shows a vehicle plunging seven stories off the side of a parking garage.

The incident happened last month.

The SUV is seen driving slowly through an alley when it comes to a stop.

All of a sudden, a BMW plunges to the ground, striking the SUV before coming to a rest on its roof.

The woman driving the BMW was seriously injured. Police say they mistook the gas pedal for the brakes and crashed through the parking garage's barriers.

That garage was cited by officials last September over unsafe barrier cable systems, and is looking at redesigning its entire cable system.
