Authorities confirm the victims of a fatal head on collision near Odell were a husband and wife, driving separate vehicles on their way to work. Troopers are still trying to figure out the cause of the fatal crash. The tragic wreck happened just before 10 a.m. on County Road 87 North and FM 2379 near Odell in Wilbarger County. The drivers were both pronounced dead on the scene.

Troopers have identified the drivers as 31-year-old Nicolas Cruz and 26-year-old Kristina Munoz, both of Chillicothe. A 1990 Mazda pickup, driven by Cruz, was headed north on County Road 87. Munoz was driving a 1999 Saturn going south on County Road 87.

Both the husband and wife worked on a farm not too far from the site of the crash. DPS Trooper Tony Fulton says, “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.”

Troopers say neither driver was wearing a seat belt. They also say Munoz is survived by three children. A memorial service was held on Monday, June 9th at 4PM at Smith Funeral Home in Chillecothe.
