Memphis, MO Couple Killed in Tragic Crash

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, in a Sunday afternoon crash, 77-year-old Elva Farris was driving northbound on Missouri Route AA when she attempted to cross Highway 54. Farris attempted to cross the highway, but failed to yield to an oncoming motorcycle, colliding with a Memphis, MO couple. The motorcycle was traveling eastbound on 54 in Miller County, Missouri when it was struck by the side of the SUV.
