HOUSTON – Talk about lucky to be alive. Check out this mess. It happened overnight on the feeder road at Merrimac and the Eastex Freeway in North Central Harris County.

The Houston Fire Department says the drivers of two vehicles were racing into the southbound entrance ramp. That’s when they collided and flipped across the feeder road. They sailed through a fence, finally landing in a vacant lot.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office says three people were in the red car, and only one person was in the SUV. Amazingly, no one was hurt. Though, one driver was arrested, but the Sheriff’s Office isn’t saying which driver is answering to the law.

Next time, these drivers should try their luck in Vegas and not on our roads.
