A driver is expected to be okay after plunging from a 7 floor parking garage in Austin, Texas.

Authorities have released video showing the moment a BMW 4 Series plunged seven stories off the edge of a parking garage in downtown Austin, Texas earlier this summer, narrowly missing a man driving his SUV as it smashed into the alley below.

Her care went through retention wires on the seventh floor and hit the building across the alley as it fell, rupturing a gas line.

Local reports claim this is the second time a auto has broken through the barriers at the Austin vehicle park.

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

The incident happened on July 13, with the Austin Police Department releasing the footage on Thursday.

Bowmer says she thought she was going to die. The city's more complete review of the facility found that several areas of the garage's cable-system railings failed to even meet the 1976 code standards, and that loose cables were found in several locations in the garage. Temporary safeguards in the form of water filled barriers have been put into place where cable barriers remain. The scene of the accident is marked off with caution tape.
