Watch: Dramatic video shows car plunging seven floors from parking garage

A video released by Texas police shows a car crashing down to the ground from the seventh floor of a garage.

Christi Bowmer was parking her BMW 328i convertible when the vehicle mistakenly accelerated, going through retention wires and into a building across the alley. Her car tumbled to the ground, where it landed nose-first and struck another vehicle before coming to a grinding stop.

In the surveillance video clip, another driver is seen driving his car through the alley and executing a U-turn, heading in the opposite direction. He briefly stops just ahead of where the car impacts on the concrete.

The driver broke her back, leg, ankle and sternum in the fall, and two arterial hemorrhages in her head threatened her life. 

In the closing seconds of the video, bystanders can be seen rushing to lend assistance.
