  • Her BMW crunches to the ground and crashes onto William Burch's Tahoe

A auto fell seven stories out of an Austin, Texas parking garage.

Surveillance video from Austin police shows a vehicle falling seven stories from a downtown parking garage and striking a SUV, landing in an alley.

Police say the woman mistook the brake for the accelerator, causing her to crash through the suspension cables.

The video shows the auto hit the pavement nose-first, clipping the rear of another vehicle as it comes to rest in the alley of the garage at 508 Brazos Street in downtown Austin.

This was the second incident of its kind this year at the Littlefield Parking Garage; last September, another vehicle drove through the same retention wires and though it didn't fall, was left dangling in the air from the ninth floor. KXAN reported the Austin Code Department issued the property a violation on September 14, 2016, citing unsafe conditions, specifically unsafe barrier cable systems.

The cables are hanging just as they were after the crash on July 13th.

The Austin Code Department said the owner of Littlefield Garage has been in touch with engineering firms to make upgrades and repairs. "My foot slipped off the brake", she said.

The vehicle then rests on its roof - as nearby witnesses, mostly construction workers, rush to the scene.

William Burch, who was driving the Chevrolet SUV, told local TV station KVUE that he was on the phone when the incident happened. A barrier wire caught the SUV as it was falling and was left dangling precariously.

Bowmer says the wires that serve as walls in the parking garage made her "freak out". However, the property owner will need to file an extension because they are redesigning the entire cable system.

"I know you all saved my life", Bowmer said.
