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.
