Woman's BMW plunges seven stories in parking garage accident

The dramatic moment of impact when the woman's BMW smashes into the ground after flying seven stories down

Surveillance video shows the auto hit the pavement after a seven-storey plunge from a downtown parking garage and striking another vehicle as it lands in the alley.

Police in Austin have released surveillance video showing a auto plunging seven stories from a downtown parking garage and striking another vehicle as it lands in an alley. APD said the woman's BMW went through the retention wires on the seventh floor of the Littlefield parking garage and hit the building across the alley as it fell, rupturing a gas line.

CCTV shows the auto appearing from the air as it crashes to the ground and flips, just missing the vehicle below, before bystanders run to the driver's aid. But Bowmer said that if those repairs had been made earlier, it might have spared her from serious injuries that almost claimed her life.

A similar accident occurred at the same garage September 9, 2016 when a 24-year-old man crashed through the barriers on the top level.

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

There was William Burch, the man whose SUV Bowman struck when her auto crashed into the ground.

The Austin Statesman reported that the BMW's driver was taken to a nearby medical center.

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

FOX 7 reports that the cables are hanging just as they were after the crash on July 13, and that city code enforcement is working closely with the property owners to bring the system up to code. The scene of the accident is marked off with caution tape.
