Funeral services are Saturday for a longtime teacher and counselor in the Emporia area who died in a one-vehicle crash in eastern Kansas.

Don Roberts died Wednesday night in the accident on Kansas Highway 99 near Olpe. He was 53.

Roberts was counselor and athletic director at Neosho Rapids Elementary and Hartford High schools. He was also the public address voice for the Lyon County League Tournament and other activities.

The Lyon County sheriff's office said Roberts was thrown from his SUV after it went off the west side of the road and rolled over. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

South Lyon County Superintendent Mike Argabright says Roberts' death is a "tragic loss" for the school district.
