Missionary who survived praises companions killed in crash

An LDS missionary who survived the crash that killed two other missionaries in Texas is praising them.

The three missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were riding their bikes in Donna, Texas, when a driver hit them head-on, killing two and sending Elder Zachary Harris of Huntsville, Ala., to the hospital.

Elder Harris is recovering and spoke exclusively to KSL.

"We worked hard together. They're both very hard workers," he said of his companion, Elder Derek Walker, from Fairfield, Idaho, and Elder Trevor Strong from Taylorsville, Utah, who died in the crash.
