The driver of this Audi Q5 miraculously escaped injury after the little SUV took a shortcut from the fourth floor of a parking garage directly to the Earth.
Authorities say 23-year-old Lindsay Taylor Cook was “not seriously injured” despite going through what must have been an absolutely pants-pooping ordeal. A surveillance camera from the Towson Parking Garage caught the spectacle as it came crashing down on the sidewalk in front of the facility.
The car looks totaled, but, I have a feeling a lesser machine would not have faired nearly as well. Our Project XJ, for example, would have atomized on impact with its rusty flakes blown away by wind before a tow truck could even get there.
As for how this happened, police are really only saying “Cook was pulling into a parking space on the fourth floor of a parking garage when her vehicle, an Audi Q5 SUV, went forward.” Case of the confused gas-and-brake pedal perhaps?
Glad everybody was okay. Be careful out there, even when parking!
