“I’m extremely sore but thankful, extremely thankful for my life,” Kieralynn House said. House is hobbled but alive after an SUV she was in the back of crashed while street racing.

“When I knew that the plans that were supposed to go on weren't going on. I should have went home,” House said. House was on a date with Luis Martinez, and were riding around with Martinez cousin Daniel Estrada. Estrada and another driver began racing. “Wrong place wrong time, yeah completely. I barely knew either one, “ House said.

House said speeds may have reached 80 miles per hour. “I was in the back passenger with a seatbelt on. I had just put it on. Once we started the racing I did close my eyes, but when I did open them, he was moving into the right lane I'm not sure if it was to cut him off or what the case was but we hit that right lane and it’s a Durango and they tip easy,” House said.

House says street racers need to understand the risks and the consequences of their actions. “As much as you want to sit there oh it might not happen to me or it's not going to happen to me, or I've been racing this long oh I know what I'm doing no matter what anything can go wrong. You really need to take your life into consideration. you really need to think that your life could be gone like that,” House said.
