Vehicle plunges seven floors from parking garage into alley below

The dramatic moment of impact when the woman's BMW smashes into the ground after flying seven stories down

Officials say a woman was hospitalized after her auto plunged from a downtown Austin parking garage - the second time in less than a year a vehicle had plunged from the garage.

The incident happened in Austin, Texas, after the vehicle fell over the edge of the auto park.

The unidentified woman inside was seriously injured but survived, police confirmed Friday. APD said the woman's BMW went through the retention wires on the seventh floor of the Littlefield parking garage and hit the building across the alley as it fell, rupturing a gas line.

William Burch, the driver of the Tahoe, spoke to KVUE after the crash.

"I was turning around in that little service delivery area".

Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services responded to the parking garage at 508 Brazos Street around 8:30 a.m., after the auto broke through a barrier and plunged into an alley. "As I was backing out towards the dumpster, I heard something, because I had my window down", said Burch. "I can just imagine what she was thinking when I had said, 'A vehicle just landed on me, I gotta go, ' " he said.

Not all parking lot incidents end that way.

The BMW fell seven floors out of a parking garage in downtown Austin, smashing onto the pavement, slamming into the SUV and coming to rest on its roof, KXAN reported.

Bizarrely, this is the second time in less than a year that a vehicle has fallen off the edge of the same parking garage.
