A missionary from Fujin, China who had only been at the Provo Missionary Training Center a few days was struck and killed by a car in the early morning hours on Friday. He had apparently left the MTC on his own during the night. According to a Church press release, "We are saddened to learn that an accident has claimed the life this morning of Elder Wen Ping Shi, a missionary receiving training at the Missionary Training Center in Provo. He had arrived in the MTC on Wednesday, June 7. Elder Shi had been called to serve in the Washington, D.C. North Mission to teach in Mandarin."
