A car crash that occurred Saturday in Fulton County, Missouri left a couple dead. According to officials, the crash took place near U.S. Routes 24 and 36. An early investigation revealed that a tractor-trailer driver failed to stop at a stop sign and hit the oncoming jeep driven by the Astoria, MO couple. The couple, both in their sixties were pronounced dead at the scene and the tractor-trailer driver was given a ticket for disobeying a stop sign. While the crash still remains under investigation, prayers go out to the family and friends of the victims involved.
