— An Arkansas woman serving a Mormon mission in Oklahoma has died after a pickup hit her bicycle, according to church officials.

The Oklahoman reported Sunday that 22-year-old Alesa Smith of Benton was riding her bicycle Friday night when she was hit by a pickup.

Nolan Taylor, an Oklahoma City-based official with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said Smith had been working in several cities throughout Oklahoma for the past 10 months.

Woodward police did not release details about the crash.

Serving on a mission is a rite of passage for many young Mormons, who serve at hundreds of missions throughout the world.

Taylor said Smith’s parents were making funeral arrangements.
