Video captures auto falling from 7th floor of parking garage

EMS and first responders on the scene examining the crushed vehicle

Floor where a BMW driver drove off in downtown Austin on July 13, 2017.

A woman is recovering from serious injuries suffered when the vehicle she was driving plunged from the seventh story of an Austin, Texas, parking garage.

Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services responded to the parking garage at 508 Brazos Street around 8:30 a.m., after the vehicle broke through a barrier and plunged into an alley.

Police said as the auto flung to the ground, it hit the building across the alleyway, rupturing a gas line.

The BMW driver sustained serious injuries and the driver of the Tahoe was uninjured. The owner of the garage has reinforced every parking spot near cables with plastic-filled barriers, the Statesman said.

Burch and other witnesses then rushed to help the woman inside.

The crash took place in July but the dramatic video was released by Austin police on Thursday.

60 former, current employees plan to sue Google over workplace culture
The allegations stem from a January lawsuit in which the Department of Labor asked Google to hand over compensation data. The political pressure led Google to add diversity and workforce issues to their lobbying agendas in Washington, D.C .

Austin Code Department issued the garage a violation just days after the barrier cable incident, KXAN reported.

Police said they are still investigating the exact cause of the crash. One of the barrier wires caught his SUV as it was falling and left his vehicle hanging precariously on the side of the garage.

The owner of the Littlefield Garage, located at 508 Brazos St., said these were the only two incidents of this kind they've experienced. The garage is now looking at redesigning its entire cable system.

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

Bowmer says she thought she was going to die.

The parking garage's owners have released a statement claiming that nothing like either of these accidents has happened in the prior 38 years, that the strength of the barriers had been checked and approved, and that the City of Austin had given its approval to the post-September repairs, too.
