New details in deadly I-10 wreck

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

*New details this morning on a deadly vehicle wreck on I-10 that killed a Jeff Davis Parish woman last night.  It happened just west of the Welsh exit.  We'll share the accident information from State Police.

*A memorial service happens later this morning in Welsh for William Precht, Jr.  He is the pilot who died when his crop duster crashed in a field south of Jennings last week.

*What's behind the rapid increase in gas prices?  We'll get that answer this morning and see if analysts are expecting a drop any time soon.

*As many as eight in ten women deal with urinary incontinence at some point in their lives.  In my Healthcast, you'll hear from one woman that opened up about the embarrassing problem and from the physical therapist that helps combat the health issue.

*The "Hiring Our Heroes" job fair happens in Lake Charles today.  Find out who's eligible to attend and what's in store.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry lets us know if the rain will be back in the forecast today.

Make it a Sunrise day!
