Car entangled in a tree!

Good morning!

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

If you were driving down Old Town Road this morning you may seen quite a sight – a car entangled high up in a tree! We'll share some incredible video of the car being taken down out of the tree, and right now we're digging into what exactly happened.

We're also going to show you a bit of area history. DeRidder has acquired one of the original sawmill homes in the city and there are plans to restore it. At noon, we'll show you the historic house, and you can read a report done by Elona Weston of our web team HERE.

Also today, do you prefer to talk on the phone with your right or your left side? A new study suggests the brains of cell phone users show subtle differences based on which ear they typically use.

Plus, something scary is a-buzz near a Florida couple's home – it's a massive hornet's nest that's the size of a Volkswagen!

In weather, Ben tells me if you love hot weather, well you're going to be in your element for the foreseeable future. Our temperatures today will soar into the 90's, and with the heat index, it will feel like more than a hundred! Is there any chance of some cooling rains? Find out during Ben's live, local forecast at noon, and you can always access the latest weather info HERE.

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