ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR—A car-train accident has claimed the life of a Latter-day Saint missionary and injured two others. Church Missionary Department officials report that Jared Marvin Prescott, twenty, of Centerville, Utah, was killed Sunday, April 25, when the car in which he was a passenger was struck from behind by a train. Elder Prescott was returning to his apartment with three other missionaries after a missionary appointment. He died en route to the local hospital.
Elder Prescott entered missionary service in July 1991 and was called to the France Paris Mission. He was then transferred to Madagascar as one of the first missionaries to work on that island located off the coast of eastern Africa.
