SALT LAKE CITY — Four Mormon missionaries and the man driving the vehicle they were in suffered injuries in a collision with a truck on Monday night in Spain, an LDS Church spokesman said Tuesday.

The man, whom the missionaries had been teaching, is in serious condition, as are Elder Mason Heninger, 20, of Cardston, Canada, and Elder Gabriel Inesta Olmo, 19, of Bayamon, Puerto Rico, said Daniel Woodruff of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Heninger and Olmo have undergone surgery.

The two other missionaries suffered minor injuries. They are Elder Caden Randall, 18, of Kaysville, Utah, and Elder Hunter Bushman, 19, of Farmington, Utah.

"We invite all people of faith to offer prayers on behalf of those involved," Woodruff said.

The missionaries are serving in the Spain Malaga Mission, one of the three LDS missions in the country, home of more than 55,000 Mormons.
