A driver escapes through a window of his car after it goes over the edge of a 9th floor parking garage and dangles off the side of the building in Austin, Texas

According to police, the tire and axle of the Toyota 4Runner SUV got caught in the wire barrier, leaving it dangling off the side of the parking structure.

The man managed to crawl out of a window in the vehicle, according to a post on the Austin Fire Department's Facebook page.

Local media reported the man was pulling in to a parking space when the car continued moving forward and went through the high tension wire and over the ledge. Firefighters and a salvage company later removed the vehicle.
