SALT LAKE CITY — One of the missionaries injured in a recent car crash in Canada has died.
The Salt Lake City-based KSL Television reports that Bryant Keck, 19, died on Tuesday. Keck’s mother was with him when he died.
“Nearly a week ago, Elder Bryant Keck and his companion missionary were driving in Kamloops, British Columbia. A Church spokesman says that’s where their car collided with a truck. Elder Dallin Thompson, age 19, was driving. He remains hospitalized in critical condition,” reported KSL.
Keck was from Sanford, Colorado, and had been serving in the Canada Vancouver Mission since June 2018.
“Our deepest condolences go out to the family and loved ones of Elder Keck as they mourn his passing and honor his life and missionary service,” said Church spokesman Daniel Woodruff in a statement Tuesday. “We continue to pray for Elder Thompson and his family as well as the individuals in the other vehicle. We hope everyone involved in this tragedy will feel the comfort and peace of the Holy Spirit during this difficult time,” Woodruff said.
