Crash in Hackberry claims life of Texas man

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in for Cynthia on this Christmas Eve. Here's a look at what we are working on today.

A fatal crash on Highway 27 just north of the Ellender Bridge in Hackberry claims the life of a Texas man. We'll have details.

Plus, bus passengers on the city transit system were surprised when Santa hopped on for a ride. KPLC's Gerron Jordan rode along as the big man in red spread Christmas cheer.

Also, the DeQuincy Railroad Museum really comes to life around this time of year. KPLC's John Bridges visits the museum in tonight's Louisiana Traveler.

And not only does it feel like Christmas, but the weather is really nice outside. Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton has your Christmas forecast along with an extended outlook at the rest of the week.

We hope you all are getting to spend time with your families this Christmas. We'll see you tonight at Five & Six for these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
