BMW violently plunges off Texas parking garage

A screenshot of the video which shows the impact after a vehicle plunged off the side of a parking garage in July

According to KXAN, the crash occurred when the woman driving the BMW mistook the gas pedal for the brakes and crashed through the parking garage barriers.

The driver of an SUV is turning around in an alleyway when he hears something and stops - about the time a BMW comes sailing out of the sky, crashes nose first on the ground and slams into him.

Austin-Travis County EMS and Austin police said the woman's auto went off the garage near Sixth Street and Brazos Street around 8:30 a.m. July 13.

Police say the July accident happened when the woman drove through retention wires on the seventh floor, hit a building across the street and plunged to the alley below.

The driver of the SUV, William Burch, was unhurt.

Burch said he could only imagine what his mother was thinking when he told her he had to go since a vehicle had just fallen on him.

The BMW then came to rest on its roof as nearby construction workers and bystanders came to the aide of the driver.

Burch told Fox 7 afterward, "It's awesome I'm still alive".

A newly released video is shocking, as it shows a woman's auto plunging seven stories to the ground.

"She was upside down", Burch told Fox 7. The owners are reportedly redesigning the barrier system.
