VERNON, Tex.  (KETK) — A man and his wife were killed in a tragic accident near Wichita Falls when the couple collided head-on in separate vehicles.

According to TX Department of Public Safety Trooper Jymie Ha,  Kristina Muniz, 26, was driving a car north on County Road 87 on Wednesday around 9:55 a.m. when she crashed into a truck driven by her husband, Nicolas Cruz, 31, at the crest of a hill.

At 10:19 a.m., Justice of the Peace Gene Morton pronounced the Chillicothe, Texas, couple dead at the scene.

Authorities believe speed and the layout of the road could be contributing factors of the crash, but the investigation is ongoing.

County Road 87 does not have lanes marked.

Trooper Ha said the couple was recently married, and both worked at the nearby Mahard Egg Farm in Prosper.

Prosper is located about 60 miles northwest of Wichita Falls.
