The two drivers who were killed in a recent head-on collision in North Texas were reportedly husband and wife.

The victims were identified as Nicolas Cruz, 31, and Kristina Munoz, 26.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the crash happened midmorning on Wednesday, three miles west of Odell on County Road 87.

Both Cruz and Munoz worked on a farm nearby.

Trooper Tony Fulton said that after one of the cars hit a curve in the road it “collided head-on with unit number two, which was travelling south on County Road 87.

“This is a very narrow, blacktop county road and there are no markings,” Fulton added. “There are no shoulder markings and there are no center stripe markings.”

Troopers have noted that neither Cruz nor Munoz was wearing a seatbelt.

Both the husband and the wife were reportedly alone in their vehicles at the time of the collision.

Trooper Jymie Ha said that investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the crash, and whether the speed of the cars contributed to the collision.

Fulton noted that there were no skid marks on the road, which would have indicated braking before the collision.
