BMW plunges seven floors in Austin parking garage

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (CNN) - Shocking video footage shows the moment a vehicle plunges seven stories off the side of a parking garage.

The incident happened last month in Austin.

In the video you can see the SUV driving slowly through the alley, when it comes to a stop.

Then, 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 breaks and crashed through the parking garage’s barriers’.

The garage was cited by Austin officials last September over unsafe barrier cable systems.

The garage is now looking at re-designing its entire cable system.
