SALT LAKE CITY — Two full time missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints passed away Thursday afternoon from injuries sustained in a head-on collision in New Mexico.
Elder Tyson Gene Haycock, 20, of Miles City, Mont., and Elder Michael Austin Davis, 20, of Corinne, Utah, were serving in the New Mexico Farmington mission.
Haycock began his missionary service last month. Davis had been serving since August 2019.
A third missionary in the vehicle, Britton Jeremie Berrett, age 19, of Roberts, Idaho, sustained serious injuries. He is listed in stable condition at a hospital in Albuquerque, N. M.
“Our deepest sympathies go to the families of these faithful missionaries, and we express our love and condolences to all who love them,” said church spokesman Sam Penrod in a statement. “We pray that their families, friends and the missionaries they have served alongside will all feel God’s love and peace during this difficult time.”
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
Bonneville International Corporation, the company that owns KSL NewsRadio, is a subsidiary of Deseret Management Corporation, which is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I have an idea for a future in-depth report. How do I tell you about it?
