People rush to the scene to help the woman whose car fell seven stories to the ground

A lucky SUV driver in Texas narrowly escaped being crushed by a BMW that plummeted seven stories off a parking garage.

Police have released security camera footage of a BMW that fell seven stories off of a parking garage in downtown Austin, Tex., in July.

The woman driving the BMW mistook the gas pedal for the brake, sending the vehicle flying off the roof deck, according to police.

The vehicle landed on top of the SUV then rolled upside down onto the ground.

An ambulance took the woman to a hospital, but KVUE said yesterday that the woman is "reportedly OK".

On July 13, William Burch pulled his Chevy Tahoe into the bottom floor of the Littlefield parking garage at 6th and Brazos, backed out and stalled for a second.

Police said they are still investigating the exact cause of the crash.

The garage is now closed as a structural engineer assesses the situation.

Austin permitted and inspected such repairs to their satisfaction.

Bowmer said that the fact two incidents occurred at that garage makes her worry about the safety of all parking garages in Austin.

Code enforcement officials with the city have said they will urge the owner of the garage to install concrete barriers instead of the cable wires.

The SUV's driver wasn't hurt.

Two arterial hemorrhages in her head almost killed Bowmer, she said.

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

Bowmer says the wires that serve as walls in the parking garage made her "freak out".

"You know that you're about to die", O'Connor said. The garage is now looking at redesigning its entire cable system.
