Posted: Updated:

3 INJURED WHEN CAR HIT TREE:
Three men were taken to Indianapolis hospitals early Monday morning after their car crashed into a tree on 36th Street east of Rural Street. Two of the men were listed in critical condition after they were extricated from the front seat of the car. Police suspect alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. Read more details here.

HEAT AND HUMIDITY ARE BACK:
We're looking for highs to reach the upper 80s Monday and possibly 90 Tuesday. There are no storms in the forecast until sometime during the day Wednesday. Indianapolis' streak of sub-90 degree days is up to 314. There is a chance of snapping the streak tomorrow when temperatures make a run at that elusive number. If we don't hit 90, it will certainly feel like we did with heat indices well into the 90s. Watch Chuck's full forecast.

FAMILY DISPLACED BY FIRE:
A family of four was displaced from their apartment when a fire was discovered around 1 a.m. Monday. Wayne Township firefighters fought the fire at the Chapel Hill Townhomes at 7616 W St. Clair St. on the west side. There were no injuries, but about $15,000 in smoke and fire damage. Read more of the story.

CARMEL ROUNDABOUTS:
Roundabouts in Carmel are getting an unwelcome workout and the city is putting the squash on it. The closure of U.S. 31 means some 18-wheelers are creating their own detours through local roads not equipped to handle the load. It's caused congestion in parts of the city and has damaged some of the roads. Reporter Carrie Cline takes a look at what the City Council is doing to stop it.

APP CONNECTS NEIGHBORS:
With the uptick in crime across Central Indiana communities, Hoosiers are turning to their smartphones to connect with neighbors. Thanks to a popular app, being up-to-date with what's happening in your neighborhood has never been easier. NextDoor App is a private social network that allows you to connect and post what's happening on your block — whether it's neighborhood vandalism, car break-ins, suspicious activity or events like garage sales. See why some Indianapolis residents like the App.
