SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) -- A 19-year-old from Richfield who was serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has died after he was struck by a car in Sweden.

A statement from the church released Sunday night identified the missionary as Mason Lewis Bailey. He had been serving in the Sweden Stockholm Mission since July 2013. Church spokesman Cody Craynor said Bailey died after he was struck by a vehicle while he and his companion were walking along a road on their way to an appointment. Bailey's companion was not hit and is uninjured.

"We are mindful of Elder Bailey's family and loved ones during this difficult time and unite our faith and prayers with all Church members, who mourn at the death of a missionary," Craynor said in the statement.
