Car plunges from the 7th floor of parking garage

AUSTIN, Texas - A woman is hospitalized after her vehicle plunges to the street from a 7th floor parking garage in Downtown Austin.

It happened around the intersection of East Sixth and Brazos Streets at 8:30 a.m. Thursday. Police say the car fell off the parking garage and landed in an alley, hitting another car down below.

"The police officer said he saw the video and he said, 'luckily you were moving forward or else it would have landed right on top of you,'" said William Burch, who was driving his SUV in the alley below the parking garage. Burch was about to park and inspect a nearby construction project he's managing when he heard commotion up above.

"My window was down and I heard something really loud and abnormal, so I just started driving forward and the vehicle landed on the backside of the Tahoe," Burch said.

Burch was uninjured. The driver of the other car is hospitalized but expected to be okay.
