A woman was seriously injured Thursday morning when her car breached steel retention cables ringing a downtown Austin parking garage and plunged five to seven stories – the second time in less than a year that has happened at the same garage, officials confirmed.

City officials said later Thursday that the earlier incident had sparked no comprehensive city review of the 38-year-old parking structure and the cable safety system, but an Austin City Council member said this second occurrence justifies a harder look from officials.
