HOUSTON – Hedley Rivera and his family are thankful to be alive after they were involved in a crash last week. Houston Police Department said street racers caused the family’s truck to flip over several times and roll off Interstate 45 near Little York Road. "The car that hit us stayed there because (the car) burnt up, but the guys that were racing fled the scene,” said Hedley. "I broke my ribs, broke my chest,” Hedley said. “I give thanks to God all the time because I’m able to talk and be here alive," Hedley said.
