AUSTIN, Texas (CNN) -- Surveillance video captured the moment a car plunged seven stories off the side of a parking garage in Texas.

In the video released by the Austin Police Department on Thursday, an SUV drives slowly through an alley then comes to a stop.

Seconds later, a BMW sedan crashes front-first into the pavement, striking the SUV before coming to a rest on its roof.

Police said the woman survived, but suffered serious injuries during the crash, which happened on July 13.

The woman reportedly mistook the gas pedal for the brakes and crashed through the parking garage's barriers.

In September 2016, that same garage was cited by Austin officials over unsafe barrier cable systems. The garage is now looking at redesigning its entire cable system.
