HOUSTON — A Texas teenager is lucky to be alive this week after his vehicle fell seven stories with him behind the wheel.
According to the Texas newspaper The Star Telegram, investigators believe the driver tried to push the brake, but actually hit the gas by mistake.
This sent car drive forward and through the roof’s barrier, before plummeting toward the roof of a hardware store below. The driver crawled through debris into the store, where firefighters went in to help him.
Amazingly, the boy escaped with minor injuries and no other injuries were reported in the accident.
