Shocking surveillance video footage begins with an SUV making a slow stop in a downtown alley, before suddenly braking as the driver hears a noise.
The driver of the SUV, William Burch, had his window down and heard the noise in the distance, in what he would soon find out was a BMW falling from a parking garage seven stories in the air.
The horrific accident is seen in the video which was released by the Austin Police Department on Thursday.
The BMW tumbles out of the sky and crashes front-first into the pavement, before violently bouncing back on Burch’s Chevrolet Tahoe.
Eventually, the BMW settles on its own roof, as several nearby construction workers and bystanders come to the aid of the driver.
Police said the woman driving the BMW, who had serious injuries from the crash, accidentally pressed the gas pedal instead of the brakes and crashed through the parking garage barriers seven stories above.
Burch was uninjured in the accident. He was on the phone with his mother when the BMW landed on his car. “I can just imagine what she was thinking when I had said, ‘a car just landed on me, I gotta go.'”
