Weather watching for your safety

At this moment, Brad Hlozek is working in the KTRE Weather Center to determine just how severe tomorrow morning's weather will be. Be sure to watch our newscasts all day today, as Brad will lead off at 6 and 10 to bring you the latest forecasts. Be sure to go download our free KTRE Weather app tonight so that you won't get caught in the dark tomorrow.

It's been five years in the making, but the way traffic stops are conducted in Tenaha could be changed after an agreement has been reached in a lawsuit against city and county officials. Allegations state motorists traveling through the area said they were stopped and forced to pay cash in order to not get arrested or have their children taken away. At 6, Michelle Reed explains how that could all be coming to an end soon.

It seems like we report on it once a month, but 18-wheelers are still tipping over at the loop intersections in Lufkin and Nacogdoches. At 6, Francesca Washington explains how that should all be coming to an end within a matter of months.

And at 10, Maegan Prejean tells you why attorneys believe an auto manufacturer is to blame in the fatal car wreck of a woman who died in Huntington.
