An Audrain County couple dies in a crash with a tractor. The Baton Rouge, Louisiana, man driving the piece of farm equipment on Highway 54 in Pike County yesterday afternoon was apparently trying to avoid another vehicle when he swerved across the center line. He hit a Ford Explorer driven by 67-year-old William Stafford of Laddonia. He, and 62-year-old Nancy Stafford, were both pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the tractor had moderate injuries.
