Terrifying! Police in Austin, Texas have released video of a car falling from the ledge in a parking garage, landing on another vehicle seven storeys below.
In the incident, which happened in mid-July, the driver of a BMW on the seventh parking level apparently hit the gas instead of the brake, drove through retention wires, hit a building across the street, and landed on the back of an SUV in the alley below. Video shows witnesses rushing to help the trapped driver, who was rushed to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Shockingly, this is the second time in less than a year that something like this has happened at this garage! Last September a car was found dangling off the side of the building. This time it was the Austin Fire Dept. to the rescue; the driver was able to climb to safety through the car’s sunroof, but the vehicle was leaking fuel as the Fire Dept. lowered it to the ground:
Unlucky garage, or what??! Or … bad drivers?
