Law officials say a family is lucky to be alive. They survived a crash near Lakeside City. The DPS says the driver was heading northbound on Highway 79 around 10 AM when she somehow left the roadway. She ended up on a grassy shoulder near the Carter Rd. intersection, lost control of the vehicle and struck a wrought iron fence. A large piece of the fence went through the front windshield and out the back window. Amazingly her kids and passengers were not hurt. The woman was taken to United Regional for cuts to her head.
