A husband and wife were killed when the separate vehicles they were driving crashed into each other.

Kristina Muniz, 26, and her new husband, Nicolas Cruz, 31, both of Wichita Falls, Texas, were driving near the egg farm where they both worked when the accident occurred. KTSM reported that Muniz was driving a car that crashed into a truck driven by Cruz at the top of a hill. Both Muniz and Cruz were pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators with the Department of Public Safety are trying to determine the cause of the crash, but they say speed and the layout of the road could be contributing factors.
