WITCHITA FALLS, Texas, June 6 (UPI) -- Officials in Texas have confirmed that two people killed in a head-on collision Wednesday were in fact husband and wife.

At roughly 9:55 a.m. Wednesday, Nicolas Cruz was approaching the crest of a hill while traveling northbound on a narrow country road while Kristina Muniz Cruz was approaching the same crest headed south. The two collided into each other on the unlined road and were pronounced dead at the scene at 10:19 a.m.

"This is a very narrow, blacktop county road and there are no markings," Department of Public Safety Trooper Tony Fulton told local reporters. "There are no shoulder markings and there are no centre stripe markings."

Neither had their seat belt buckled.
