ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (KTHV) - Today's THV anchor Matt Turner was laid to rest in Arkadelphia Wednesday afternoon.
Matt Turner died in a car accident on I-30 Saturday night. State police say his vehicle ran off the interstate and hit a highway sign.
Matt joined Today's THV in September, coming to us from television station KNWA in northwest Arkansas, where he spent nine years on the anchor desk. This provided Matt with a great start to a promising career.
As a homegrown Arkansan, Matt was born and raised in Arkadelphia where his father was the long-time preacher at 3rd Street Baptist Church. Tuesday night a visitation was held for Matt at the church.
At Matt's funeral, several familiar faces spoke fond memories of Matt such as Craig O'Neill, Steve Sullivan, and Bo Mattingly.
