In a region of an electric field (strong or weak), if you put a free charged particle (for simplicity consider it to be positive), the particle shall experience a force due to the field and would move along the field.

So, in a region if two electric field lines would cross, the charged particle would have two directions of motion which is terribly absurd.

One must conclude that the electric field lines must never intersect.
