Texas newlyweds crash their cars into each other and the accident tragically killed them both. Nicolas Cruz and Kristina Muniz Cruz were driving separate cars going down the same road in opposite directions when they slammed into each other head-on. The young couple worked at the same place and were believed to be driving between buildings at Mahard Pullet Farm in Vernon, Texas.

NewOxy reports June 8 that authorities claim speed and no markings on the narrow road caused the crash.

Wednesday Nicolas was driving northbound as he approached the crest of a hill; his wife was driving southbound towards the same crest. They collided when their vehicles met. Both were pronounced dead at the scene. According to the report, neither one had on their seat belt.

Department of Public Safety Trooper Tony Fulton said this about the Texas newlyweds crash last Wednesday:

"This is a very narrow, blacktop county road and there are no markings. There are no shoulder markings and there are no centre stripe markings."

The layout of the road is also believed to have made for bad visibility for the drivers. Rescuers had to use special equipment to remove their bodies from the vehicles.

Nicolas' 1999 Saturn swerved across the unmarked rural road and crashed into his wife's 1990 Mazda pickup, according to New York Daily News.

The Texas newlyweds got married last spring and have three children they leave behind. The pair were originally from Mexico and relocated to the United States.
