AUSTIN, TX —  A scary situation happened Friday for a driver in downtown Austin. Police say the driver drove off a parking garage.

The driver managed to drive his or her car off the top level of the parking garage and got it caught in the high tension wires, police said. The driver managed to get out of the car without any injuries.

Several people who work in the downtown area took photos of the car dangling between the garage and another building. Andrew Miller was grabbing a bite to eat at the nearby P. Terry’s when he saw the commotion and immediately ran outside to see what was going on.

“The driver was still in the driver seat when I came outside,” Miller said. “It looked pretty dangerous even though it wasn’t swinging.”

Miller immediately took out his phone and managed to get video of the driver climbing out of the vehicle. The whole incident reminded Miller of a scene from “Jurassic Park.”

The situation also turned scary for a Jimmy John’s delivery person. The employee was on a bicycle going through the alleyway when the vehicle came over the garage.

Emergency crews are currently working to get the suspended vehicle down to the ground. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
