Texas newlyweds die in a car crash while approaching an intersection on a narrow county road. The crash involved Nicolas and Kristina Muniz Cruz, husband and wife, before killing them in their separate vehicles.

It was reported by the New York Daily News that the couple likely both drove to work because of different shift schedules. “Both were employed at the Mahard Pullet Farm and were driving in separate cars between two different buildings used by the business,” the site said. Rescuers needed special tools to extricate the young dead couple from their mangled vehicles, police said.

On Wednesday morning, Nicolas was approaching the crest of a hill while traveling northbound while Kristina was approaching the same crest headed south. The two collided into each other on the unlined road and were pronounced dead at the scene. Neither had their seat belt buckled.

“This is a very narrow, blacktop county road and there are no markings,” Department of Public Safety Trooper Tony Fulton told local reporters. “There are no shoulder markings and there are no centre stripe markings.” Investigators believe speed could have played a part in the deadly crash, too.

Investigators say that not only speed and layout of the road caused the the newlyweds to crash, but the hill crest was probably to blame as well. The hill may have hindered vision of oncoming traffic. It’s believed they were driving between buildings at work at Mahard Pullet Farm.

Munoz’s 1999 Saturn veered across an unlined road and slammed into Cruz’s 1990 Mazda pickup head-on — killing them both.

“It appears speed and the layout of the road, including a hill crest, are going to be factors in the cause of the accident,” Department of Public Safety Trooper Jymie Ha told the Record.

Cruz’s Facebook indicates he married Munoz in the Spring of last year. The couple had three young children. Cruz and his wife were originally from Mexico before they moved to Texas.
