A missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints died Thursday in Honduras from injuries he suffered in a car accident.

His companion, Elder George B. Lewis, from Francis, Utah, was injured in the accident but is expected to recover.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this tragedy," the church said Friday in a written statement.
