ARKADELPHIA, AR (KAIT/AP) - 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 reportsthat 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 I-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.

In a statement on their website, KTHV says "Matt quickly became a friend to all here at Today's THV.  We enjoyed his humor and admired his dedication to family and community.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Matt's family and friends."

According to their website, Turner earned several honors, hosted several statewide debates during his career and "took pride in the many relationships he's built with so many Arkansans, from sports figures to politicians to neighbors."

Turner lived in Little Rock but was an Arkadelphia native.
