SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A 19-year-old Mormon missionary from Utah is dead after being hit by a vehicle in Sweden.

A spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says Mason Lewis Bailey died Sunday.

Church officials say Bailey had been serving in Stockholm since July 2013 and was walking to an appointment with his companion when he was struck. Bailey's partner was not hit by the vehicle.

Bailey was from Richfield.
