Deadly weekend on Southwest Louisiana roadways

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for this Sunday edition of Nightcast.

It's been a deadly weekend on Southwest Louisiana roadways. Three people have died in single-vehicle crashes. The latest crash happened around 6:15 this evening on I-10 in Sulphur. We'll have details.

Plus, folks living near University subdivision experienced power outages after an 18-wheeler took down a utility pole. The accident also caused traffic delays as officials cleared the area.

Also, the members of the Southwest Louisiana Bar Association are preparing to host this year's Law Day. KPLC's Gerron Jordan will tell you how this year's theme is celebrating Americans' right to vote.

And Sunday may have started out on a rainy note, but the clouds cleared and the sun came out long enough to smell the roses. KPLC's Haley Rush takes the Spring Rose Tour.

And more rain could be on the way. Meteorologist Zack Fradella is back tonight with a look at the forecast.

We'll see you tonight at Ten for these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
