In what can be seen as an unfathomable situation, a camera captured a auto falling into view out of nowhere at a parking garage in Austin.

The video, released Thursday, shows the vehicle bouncing off the pavement into a Chevrolet Tahoe SUV, then rolling upside down in the alley.

In the clip, shot from a security camera in the alley below, we see a Chevy Tahoe completing a three-point turn and getting ready to park. Then, all of a sudden, a BMW plunges to the ground, striking the SUV before coming to a rest on its roof.

The woman driving the BMW mistook the gas pedal for the brake, sending the auto flying off the roof deck, according to police.

Franklin gaining hurricane strength as it draws bead on Mexico's Gulf coast
The tropical Atlantic is about 1 to 2 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal, which can spur on hurricane development, Bell said. These numbers include the six named storms that have occurred already this season - including Tropical Storm Franklin .

"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", William Burch said.

GTT Parking, the garage's owner, said a similar incident happened in September 2016 in the same garage, but on a different floor in which no one was hurt. She was seriously injured in the crash.

The incident marked the second time in less than a year that a auto broke through the barriers of the same parking garage. Bystanders reportedly helped the driver until paramedics arrived. Waco's KXXV-TV reported that the garage was cited by officials that same month for unsafe barrier cable systems.
