Vehicle dangles from parking garage in downtown Austin
A car was hanging from wires after going over the ninth story of a downtown parking garage Friday afternoon.
APD was called to the scene shortly after 2:30 p.m. The vehicle, a 2004 Toyota 4runner, was hanging from the side of Littlefield Garage, located near Sixth Street and Congress Avenue at 508 Brazos Street. Guide wire was wrapped around one of the wheels of the vehicle, preventing it from falling.
The driver, a 24-year-old man, told APD that he was parking on the ninth floor of the garage and was unable to stop the vehicle. He said the vehicle flipped end over end down the side of the garage before it became caught on the wire. With the help of a bystander, the driver was able to climb out of the vehicle through an open window and into the parking garage without injury. APD said that he was wearing his seatbelt when the accident happened. – READ MORE
