Good morning!

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

We'll tell you about a deadly accident at Ward Line Road and Highway 397 this morning in Lake Charles. State Police tell us one person died as a result of the wreck.

Meanwhile, some new stats about accidents in Louisiana doesn't bode well for teen drivers. Across the nation, motor vehicle crashes remain the leading cause of death for U.S. teens. At noon we'll tell you about the scary numbers for our state.

Also today, the summer travel season is getting closer. While gas prices are lower than last year, experts say we can expect to pay more at the pump as Memorial Day draws near.

Plus, have you heard of the "Caveman Diet"? We'll take a look at this latest fad and what it involves.

In weather, Ben tells me rain looks unlikely for the rest of the day with a mix of sun and clouds. Tonight he says watch out for the warm and muggy conditions. What about our weekend? Get all the answers in Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

And if you were watching the Today show just a little while ago you may have seen a familiar face. A Lake Charles woman gets an ambush makeover and we'll show you the results.

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