Henderson U. Baseball Team Prepares for Funeral of Player

ARKADELPHIA, AR - Members of Henderson State University's baseball team will attend a funeral tomorrow for Taylor Kyle Roark, a freshman player who died in a car crash.

Police say Roark died Friday after he lost control of the truck he was driving, crossed the centerline and struck a tractor-trailer just east of Arkadelphia.

Roark, 18, was from Sherwood.  He is survived by parents Kelly and Lisa Roark.

Reddie baseball coach John Harvey addressed the team after Roark's death and grief counselors were available for students.

Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. at Faith Baptist Church in North Little Rock.
