CHILLICOTHE, Texas, June 6 (UPI) -- A recently married couple driving separate vehicles were killed in a head-on collision near the East Texas farm where they worked, police said.

Cristina Muniz, 26, and Nicolas Cruz, 31, were on County Road 87 when they struck each other Wednesday morning, Trooper Jymie Ha of the Department of Public Safety told KETK-TV. Cruz was driving a pickup truck south and Muniz was headed north in a car.

The collision was at the crest of the hill on the road, which has no lines. Investigators said that may have contributed to the crash and that Muniz, Cruz or both might have been driving too fast.

Ha said the couple were newlyweds.

The Times Record News, of Wichita Falls, Texas, reported the couple both worked at Mahard Pullet Farm near Chillicothe, where they lived. The newspaper said they had three children.
