7 from 7: Stories for your Thursday afternoon

Posted: Updated:

Good afternoon, everyone! We hope you're enjoying this fall-like weather today. It's beautiful in downtown Tyler!

Here are some stories of interest for you to peruse this afternoon:

1. Here's a "feel-good" story for you: A Wood county woman lost her husband unexpectedly. He had just begun renovating their home, and Belinda knew she wouldn't be able to finish his work. The family's neighbors surprised her by finishing the renovations for her! (We are once again reminded why we are proud of East Texas.) Join us for that story tonight on East Texas News at 6 when our Laura Sadler tells you the whole story.

2.A man and woman were arrested Wednesday after they allegedly stole a car from a Walmart parking lot. According to the Longview Police Department, 25-year-old Jimmy Ray Gibson, of Gilmer, and 25-year-old Stephanie Stewart, of Longview, were taken into custody just after 3 p.m. You may be surprised to find out where these alleged thieves were arrested.See more at 6.

3. Fall is creeping closer, but you can still celebrate summer with live music and other events this weekend. There are more things than you could possibly do on our list. See it by clicking here.

4. A Texarkana, TX woman is behind bars, charged with leaving her 9-month-old baby unattended in a hot car. She was inside shopping and had left the window cracked three inches, police say. Please learn from this story; never leave children or pets unattended in a vehicle, most especially when it's hot.


Nicholas Crouch


5.The Smith County Sheriff's Office is seeking Nicholas Crouch, 20. Crouch is suspected of burglarizing a church and two houses. If you know where Crouch is, please call the Smith County Sheriff's Office at 903-556-6600.

6. The Associated Press released their preseason high school poll on Thursday and several East Texas teams snagged spots in the rankings. Whitehouse (6th) and John Tyler (8th) were in the top 10 in Class 4A. See all the details here.

7. According to Troup police, a man was struck by a train Wednesday evening and then fled to a nearby residence. A witness told police that the man fled from the railroad tracks to a home about 200-yards away. The witness report and a blood trail left by the man led officers to the home.What officers found next makes this story even more unbelievable.More on that at 6.

Here's the link to our livestream on KLTV.com. We're live at 4, 5 and 6!
