Sunrise to Go: Tuesday, June 24

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Here are 10 things Kentuckiana will be talking about today:

1: Storms: A cold front is approaching the area which will bring numerous storms today with gusty winds and heavy downpours at times.  Additional storms tonight with heavy rain could cause flooding issues. The storms will keep temperatures out of the 90s for a change as the cold front brings in slightly cooler air to WAVE Country for the rest of the work week.

2: Shooting: Two people were killed and another person injured in a shooting Monday afternoon north of Paoli. Indiana State Police said Cory Harris, 25, died late Monday from a gunshot wound to the head. Earlier in the day, Nick Fields, 56, died at Indiana University Health in Paoli after also being hit in the head. Fields' family members said the triple shooting at Fields' home, 2350 North County Road 200 West, was drug-related.

3: Crash: One person was killed and two Louisville Metro EMS workers were seriously injured in a crash involving an ambulance. The crash became the worst case scenario for emergency crews who were trying to get to one life or death situation only to become a part of another one.  According to Louisville Metro police, at 6:27 p.m. Monday the ambulance was traveling with lights and sirens eastbound on River Road, on a medical run of a report of a man down, when the ambulance crashed into a blue Geo Metro turning right onto River Road from Frankfort Avenue.

4: Hit: A pedestrian has died after being hit by a vehicle in downtown Louisville. According to Louisville Metro police, the accident happened at the intersection of East Broadway and South Jackson Street shortly after midnight. Police say the man was homeless and died at the scene. It's not clear if the man was walking in the street or trying to cross. The driver could face charges because he did leave the scene, but later turned himself into police.

5: Caught on Camera: A man said he couldn't believe the scene that unfolded in front of him following a crash on Interstate 71 near Carrollton. David Boggs said he was driving on I-71 on Sunday when two drivers started fighting on the highway.  According to Boggs, a man wearing denim shorts crashed his truck into a truck driven by the man wearing khaki shorts. That's when Boggs said the man in the denim shorts yanked the other driver out of his car, then a woman who was with the man in the denim shorts sat on top of the other driver while the man in the denim shorts punched him.

6: Update: The morning after a 17-year-old girl was killed in a crash, beer cans were still scattered across an embankment off of Deckard School Road in Hardin County. According to Kentucky State Police Sergeant Rex Allaman, around 10:15 p.m. Sunday Brianna Taylor, 17, was driving north on Patriot Parkway when two men in a red truck heading east on Deckard School Road slammed into her red mustang. The truck flipped and the Mustang had to be cut open at the intersection of Deckard School Road and New Patriot Parkway.

7: Superintendent: JCPS Superintendent Dr. Donna Hargens has been re-appointed for the 2014-2015 school year. The recent evaluation found that Dr. Hargens was meeting the board's expectations, but board members say they would like to hear more of her opinions on school matters.

8: Tumor: Since the arrest of Teryn Applegate, the Harrison County Sheriff's Office says numerous people have come forward to say they donated to the mother believed to be dying from a cancerous brain tumor.  Lt. Nick Smith said the investigation is ongoing, so it's not clear how much money was donated, but he said it will be in the thousands.

9: Sunscreen: When you choose a sunscreen for your child, what do you look for? About a third of consumers buy a sunscreen that claims to be for kids and many choose one that's doctor-recommended.

10: Dining: It doesn't matter how hot it is or how much snow is on the ground there's one place that's always open. Sandefur Dining Hall means a lot to several people in the community and organizers are hoping to make menu changes to benefit those who eat there. Mark Hyde, 41, has come to the dining hall for lunch for the last three years. Once homeless, he now has a part time job and lives at the YMCA. Seven days a week he stands in line with about 160 others members of the community in the alley behind the Cathedral of the Assumption in downtown Louisville. Sandefur Dining Hall has served food to the needy since the Great Depression.
