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

No one is hurt after a Merryville man loses control of his pickup and runs into a mobile home. It happened this morning in DeQuincy in the 1000 block of Bill Phillips Road near La. 389. We'll hear what the driver had to say at noon. You can also read more about the accident HERE.

Meanwhile, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a 56-year-old DeQuincy woman on Wednesday. They've arrested her 85-year-old live-in companion. Apparently, the man was operating his truck in their driveway when she was struck. Look for that story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Need a new diet plan? We'll tell you about a challenge called "Eating Clean" that's starting this week. It's all about choosing foods close to their natural state.
      
Plus, an American couple falls in love with a dog they found while vacationing in Aruba, but now they're being sued by an Aruban family, who claims the dog belongs to them.

In weather, we can expect a cloudy day with a high in the upper 70s this afternoon. Those rain chances are expected to increase dramatically as we head into the weekend. Meteorologist Ben Terry will outline the rain chances in his live, local forecast at noon. You can also access weather info 24/7 HERE.
