Pregnant women in altercation over 'handsome' man?

A pregnant woman was seriously hurt when she was pinned by a car driven by a woman who is also pregnant – probably by the same man. That man apparently has told investigators it's probably because he's "handsome."

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

A story of love gone wrong – way wrong. A pregnant woman was seriously hurt when she was pinned by a car driven by a woman who is also pregnant – probably by the same man. That man apparently has told investigators it's probably because he's "handsome." Yep…he said that and you can see the whole story at noon, but if you can't wait – watch it HERE.

Also today, a look at an alternative to traditional sinus surgery that cuts the pain and down time by using a simple balloon.

Plus, a Louisiana woman thought she was the victim of an April Fool's prank when she opened her electric bill. It seems the company only wanted – her two cents.

In weather, Ben says there will be breaks in the rain, but overall a cloudy, rainy day is in store.  He says any lingering shower chances will end tomorrow. At noon, he'll let us know just how much rain fell across our area overnight and tell us what we can expect for the rest of the work week and our weekend during his live, local forecast.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!
