Four Missionaries Killed in Head-On Crash
Associated Press 29Jan00 N1

OSCEOLA, IOWA -- Four LDS missionaries were killed Friday in a head-on collision with a pickup truck eight miles west of Osceola, Iowa. The missionaries were traveling westbound on U.S. Highway 34 when the driver of their car lost control while trying to pass another vehicle.

When the driver lost control of their vehicle, their car crossed into the eastbound lanes, and ran head-on into the pickup truck. Both vehicles burst into flames. The driver of the pickup truck also died in the crash. His identity was not available.

The four missionaries were returning from an conference in southern Iowa. The four missionaries were identified as Elders Jaysen Ray Christiansen, Jared Mont Pulham, Bradley Alan Savage, and Daniel Byrne Roundy. All four missionaries had been in the Des Moines mission for less than a year, according to Elder W. Craig Zwick of the LDS Church's missionary department.
