The incident happened in an Austin, Texas, alley on July 13.

The driver of the Chevrolet Tahoe was turning around when he heard a noise and suddenly braked. 


That noise turned out to be a BMW falling seven stories from a parking garage.

The car crashed into the pavement before violently bouncing into the SUV.

The BMW then came to rest on its roof as nearby construction workers and bystanders came to the aide of the driver.

Police say the woman driving the BMW mistook the gas pedal for the brakes and crashed through the parking garage barriers.

The BMW driver sustained serious injuries and the driver of the Tahoe was uninjured.
