VERNON, Texas (CNN) – A newly married wife and her husband were killed in a tragic crash near Witchita Falls when the couple collided head-on in separate vehicles.

According to Department of Public Safety Trooper Jymie Ha, on Wednesday around 9:55 a.m., Kristina Muniz, 26, was driving a car north on County Road 87, an unlined road, and 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 believed speed and the layout of the road could be contributing factors of the crash, but the investigation is ongoing.

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.
