11/10 A Cincinnati man trying to back out of a parking space downtown early Friday evening, ended up backing out of the entire garage.
The truck went crashing through a brick wall and landed one full story below at the garage located on West Seventh and Race streets.
The driver, Adam Teutsch, became both famous and infamous in just a matter of seconds.
"I remember hearing the engine revving and then I heard the crash, and then I was looking up at the brick wall," said Teutsch.
Teutsch's Ford F-150 pickup became the subject of countless photographs, stares – and overall disbelief – after hundreds of people came to see for themselves a sight normally reserved for Hollywood.
The question on everyone's mind at the scene was how could it happen?
According to a suprisingly uninjured Teutsch, very easily.
"Last thing I remember is the accelerator just going, I had a floor mat behind the brakes so they didn't do anything – hit the wall and fell," said Teutsch.
The fall from the second floor was only part of the problem as the truck eventually landed on gas lines.
Duke Energy was called in and was able to turn the lines off without incident.
Finally the pickup was towed away.
The parking garage is located in the six-story Gramercy Center, which is also home to business and homes.
According to the Cincinnati police, Teutsch could face a failure to control citation.
