ODELL, Texas (KRON and wire reports) — A North Texas husband and wife have died when their vehicles collided head-on near where both work.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the crash happened around midmorning Wednesday 3 miles west of Odell (oh-DEL’), about 60 miles northwest of Wichita Falls.

The Wichita Falls Times Record News reports the husband and wife were alone in their vehicles during the wreck near the Marhard Pullet (PUL’-et) Farm. DPS identified the victims as 31-year-old Nicolas Cruz and 26-year-old Kristina Munoz.

Munoz is survived by three children, officials said.

Trooper Jymie Ha says investigators are trying to determine a cause for the accident and whether speed contributed to the wreck on County Road 87.

Officials said the couple recently married and both worked at the nearby Mahard Egg Farm in Prosper.
