Kylie Harris, Maria Cruz Killed in Taos Car Accident

 
TAOS, NM (September 4, 2019) – Country singer Kylie Rae Harris caused a three-vehicle crash in New Mexico that killed her and a 16-year-old girl Wednesday night.
 
Investigators currently believe Harris caused the accident and that speed was a contributing factor. She clipped the back of another vehicle, consequently sending her into oncoming traffic as a result.
 
Her vehicle eventually collided head-on into an SUV driven by Maria Elena Cruz, a student at Taos High School. Harris and Cruz both died at the scene as a result of the impact.
 
The responding emergency crew included the father of Cruz, Pedro Cruz, the deputy chief of the San Cristobal Volunteer Fire Department. He did not know his daughter was a part of the accident before he arrived to the scene.
 
Furthermore, authorities also say evidence at the scene indicated that alcohol may have played a role. However, they declined to provide further details at this time.
 
State officials are currently awaiting a toxicology report from the coroner’s office at this time.
 
The Taos News later reported that 30-year-old Harris had a prior DWI conviction in Collin County, Texas in 2017. In addition, she was ordered to install an ignition interlock device on her vehicle, according to court records.
 
Harris was a country singer originally from Wylie Texas. She was also a single mother of her 6-year-old daughter, Corbie.
 
Moreover, Harris was set to perform at Michael Hearne’s Big Dance Festival. She wrote her first song at the age of fourteen and had recently released two albums in March.
 
Furthermore, Harris’ publicist Sarah Frost, said on Thursday that the musician’s family and friends are heartbroken over her death. Harris released a self-titled album earlier this year and had spent the summer traveling to shows throughout Texas.
 
Students and faculty at Taos High are also in shock after learning about Cruz. The sophomore is remembered as beautiful, kind, hardworking, intelligent and inspirational.
