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.
Were they texting each other?
This from “Opposing Views”.
I can see how it could happen to two people who travel the same road often.
I almost had a head on collision with a girlfriend. We lived on a winding dirt road along the Muskegon river. I was on my way home from town and she had decided she wanted something else from the store and we met at a sharp turn. We slid to a stop about 2 feet apart.
He had it comin....

“Why didn’t you watch where you were going?”
“Me? It was YOU’RE fault.”
Terrible. That said, I don’t know why people won’t wear seatbelts. We had a horrible crash where I live last week (truck went airborne onto the other side of the interstate, bounced off the roof of a car and then flew back to the other side) where the only person killed in the first part of the accident was the person not wearing a seat belt.
Unfortunately, several people were killed when the accident was being cleared and a tractor trailer truck ran into the back of the line that had been stopped for the clean up - one of the vehicles was an older Ford Explorer, and it did what they do (explode).
But just putting on the seat belt would save a lot of people, and also in some cases prevent them from losing control of their car if it is struck. Happened to me - I stayed in place after being T-boned and tipped next to a gully and I was able to control the car enough to head it away. If I hadn’t had my seat belt on, I would have been flipped against the roof.
Well, if it was meant to be a murder that looked like an accident, it wasn’t planned very well.
I feel like I’m going to fall out of the car if I don’t wear a seat belt.
Maybe it was an accident that looked like murder-suicide.
Wasn’t that a Nine Inch Nails music video?
That would be ingenious.
My brother-in-law’s brother lives at the end of a long dirt road in Ireland, on which he had a head-on crash with his wife. He started yelling at her, claiming it was her fault. A bunch of construction guys saw the incident and him yelling at her, so they came over to defend her. He told them it was his wife, and they all just started pointing and laughing at them.
Yeah, found it.
That would be tough to go parking in, but if she came with it we’d make due.
