article imageHusband and wife kill each other in head-on crash

By Scott Tuttle     Jun 6, 2014 in Technology
Odell - On Wednesday morning, two drivers in separate vehicles were allegedly killed after a head-on collision. Coincidentally, the drivers were husband and wife.
Nicolas Cruz, 31, and Kristina Munoz, 26 both worked at Mahard Egg Farm in North Texas near the scene of the accident. Because of their different shifts, they often had to take separate vehicles.
The crash reportedly took place about three miles west of Odell on County Road 87. As the road had was not marked, the evidence suggests that Munoz's car drifted too far to the left at the crest of a hill and struck her husband's car head-on.
“This is a very narrow, blacktop county road and there are no markings,” said Texas State Highway Trooper Tony Fulton. “There are no shoulder markings and there are no center stripe markings.”
Fulton also observed that there were no skid marks on the road where the two cars collided, which would have indicated last-minute braking. It would appear there was no time for reaction when the drivers saw each other.
The impact from the crash was so powerful, the bodies had to be cut from the wreckage with special equipment. Both were pronounced dead on site, and neither was wearing a seat belt.
The drivers were alone in their respective vehicles during the accident.
"It appears speed and the layout of the road, including a hill crest, are going to be factors in the cause of the accident," said Trooper Jymie Ha to Times Record News.
The couple are survived by their three children.
