ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Police say a woman they claim was highly intoxicated sped through wire suspension cables in her parking deck, sending her car dangling over the fourth-floor edge.

The incident occurred in a parking deck in the 2500 block of Piedmont Road in Atlanta Thursday night.

Police said a witness saw Madison Merritt speeding through the parking deck in an attempt to try and stop another vehicle in front of her. Instead of turning up to the next level, the witness told police that Merritt sped forward into the suspension cables, which are designed to keep cars from falling into the street.

Several pictures and video were posted on social media, showing the vehicle dangling over the edge of the structure.

Police said when they arrived, Merritt was still inside near the front passenger side of the vehicle. According to police, she appeared to be highly intoxicated and incoherent and didn't know where she was.

An officer opened the rear left passenger door, reached in and pulled her out to safety.

Merritt was stammering in her speech and could barely stand up, according to police. She was taken to the hospital for observation and arrested and charged with driving under the influence. 

There was substantial damage done to the parking structure.
