We have seen cars plunging off parking garages in movie stunts, and this terrifying footage shows it happening in the real-life accident.
Statesman Media reports how the BMW 4-Series crashed through the barrier and fell seven-stories down the parking garage before crashing hard onto a ground floor, flattening the vehicle’s front-end.
This accident occurred in Austin, Texas, last month, and police have only now released the footage. It is scary to watch, as the coupe hits the ground nose-first with the considerable force, clips the back of the passing SUV and rolls onto its roof. Passers-by rushed to rescue this trapped driver escape the overturned vehicle.
The woman driving the BMW 4-Series sustained serious, and not life-threatening injuries, was treated in hospital. It is fortunate that the vehicle didn’t land directly on the SUV or any other vehicles or pedestrians.
This brutal crash could have easily caused multiple injuries or fatalities. Unbelievably, and this isn’t the first time the accident of this nature has happened in the same parking garage.
Last year, the Toyota 4Runner smashed through the barriers and was left dangling precariously off a top floor for several nerve-racking hours.
Fortunately, no one was hurt. The garage issued the statement and that no similar accidents had happened in a last 38 years prior to these accidents and that the structural engineer had been hired to approve their safety barriers.
