CHILLICOTHE, TX -- A memorial service was scheduled for late Monday afternoon (June 9) at the Smith Funeral Home in Chillicothe for a husband and wife killed last week in separate vehicles during a head-on collision.

The crash was near Odell in Wilbarger County. The drivers, Nicolas Cruz, 31, and Kristina Munoz, 26, were both pronounced dead on the scene.

Along county Road 87, Cruz was going north in a pickup truck; Munoz was going south in a passenger car. Both worked at a farm near the crash site.

DPS Trooper Tony Fulton said, “This is a very narrow, blacktop county road, and there are no markings. There are no shoulder markings, and there are no center stripe markings.”

Fulton says there are no skid marks to indicate braking before the collision, and he said neither driver was wearing a seat belt.

Texomashomepage.com reported that Munoz is survived by three children.
