He wasn’t hurt — but that much couldn’t be said for the luxury cars beneath him.
A 74-year-old man driving a 2012 BMW X5 crashed through cable barriers separating two levels of a Loop parking garage Thursday — and his SUV came to a stop atop a 2005 Jaguar and a 2003 Mercedes-Benz parked on the level beneath him, police said.
It happened at 11:45 a.m. Thursday in the garage at 20 E. Randolph — just east of Macy’s on State Street.
Police cited the 74-year-old with driving too fast for conditions.
