Police in Austin have released surveillance video showing a auto plunging seven stories from a downtown parking garage and striking another vehicle as it lands in an alley.

The gripping surveillance video begins with an SUV making a slow turnaround in a downtown alley, before suddenly braking as the driver hears a noise. The BMW then comes to rest on its roof, as nearby construction workers and bystanders come to the aid of the driver.

A screen grab from security camera footage shows the moment a BMW vehicle slams into the ground just missing an SUV after falling seven floors from a parking garage.

Burch was uninjured. He was on the phone with his mother when the BMW landed on his vehicle.

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. Moments later, people run to help the driver escape.

In September 2016, that same garage was cited by Austin officials over unsafe barrier cable systems.
