ARKADELPHIA Funeral services are set for Little Rock television station KTHV anchor Matt Turner, who was killed in a Saturday traffic crash.
A visitation is set for Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 3rd Street Baptist Church in Turner’s hometown of Arkadelphia.
KTHV reports that a funeral will be at 1 p.m. Wednesday, also at the church.
Ruggles-Wilcox Funeral Home in Arkadelphia is handling the arrangements.
Turner died in a single-vehicle accident in which his SUV went off westbound Interstate 30 in Benton and struck a concrete base for a highway sign.
Turner went on the air for KTHV in September after he left Fayetteville television station KNWA, where he worked for eight years.
