Good Wednesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:


*A high speed chase in Sulphur ends with a crash and two people hurt, one of them a police officer.  We'll have the video of the incident and tell you the chain of events.

*The man accused of killing a baby in Calcasieu Parish in 2011 makes a plea deal and gets jail time.  Find out how many years Efrem O'Gwin will serve in prison.

*A Baton Rouge teen is in jail this morning after police say he accidentally shot and killed his two-year-old brother.  We'll tell you what went wrong when the young man was playing with a handgun.

*When we look at something, the visual interpretation is received through the eyes, but interpreted by the brain.  This morning, we explain how new diagnostic technology in Southwest Louisiana is tracking the eye-to-brain communication signal and how it could save your vision.

*Louisiana students can now graduate high school by taking online classes from home.  Our teen reporter will join us live in the studio for a look at virtual classes available to area students.
