A woman in the BMW suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries.

"Gosh. That's crazy. It's amazing I'm still alive," Burch told Fox 7 when viewing the footage for the first time.

The car had suffered damage before slamming into the ground after hitting a building across the alley on its way down.
