The answer to this question is very simple. This is because E (electric field vector) could have only one direction at a given point. If the lines cross, then on the point of intersection E has two directions (remember?? we find the direction of E at a particular point by drawing tangent at that point), so this is never possible because a same vector could not have more than one directions.
