June 24th, 2009 by

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Police say a pregnant woman and her unborn baby escaped injury after she accidentally drove off the fourth floor of a Springfield parking garage.

Sgt. John Delaney said Erin Juarez, 31, was pulling into a spot at the garage Monday and accidentally hit the gas. The car then crashed through a metal barrier and plunged out of the garage onto Dwight Street.

The car landed on its roof on the pavement below. Delaney said Juarez, who is four months pregnant, was treated for non-life threatening injuries at a local hospital and her fetus was fine.

He said Juarez was wearing a seat belt.
