A Kansas man who survived a horrific car crash in 2015 is still thanking the first responders who saved his life. Jeff Kudlacik survived a March 2015 drunk driving accident which left his car split in two. He was thrown from the car and left with broken ribs and legs and a punctured lung. Looking back on the accident, Kudlacik says he is forever grateful to the first responders who arrived at the scene. “Without these firefighters, I wouldn’t be here,” he told Inside Edition.
