Two Utah LDS missionaries involved in Spain car crash

Four missionaries with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were injured in a crash in Spain Monday.

Two of those four are from Utah.

Officials with the Church said Elder Caden K.  Randall, 18 from Kaysville, and Elder Hunter J. Bushman, 19 from Farmington, were in the vehicle with two other elders when the crash happened.

"The missionaries were riding in a vehicle driven by a man they had been teaching," church spokesperson Daniel Woodruff said. That driver is in serious condition.

Woodruff said the missionaries from Utah both sustained minor injuries. The other two missionaries, Elder Mason T. Heninger, 20 from Cardston, Canada, and Elder Gabriel E. Inesta Olmo, 19 from Bayamon, Puerto Rico, were seriously injured.  Woodruff said they required surgery.

The four missionaries are serving in the Spain Malaga Mission.

"We invite all people of faith to offer prayers on behalf of those involved," church spokesperson Woodruff said.
