Good afternoon. This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC newsroom. We've got breaking news from a crime investigation underway right now in Lake Charles. Eyewitnesses tell 7News a white van exited from I-10 about an hour ago and hit a utility pole at the Wendy's next to the mall. They say a man then jumped out of the van and ran down West Prien Lake Road as police were chasing him. Our news crew is at the scene. We don't know just yet why the man was running from police. We'll have more on the story coming up on Live At Five.
