That scene has been problematic since Skyrim was released. It’s not tied to any specific mod, and most often is because for whatever reason it’s very memory taxing.
Most people have no problems with it now-a-days by having Crash Fixes, SKSE plugin preloader, and ENB Boost installed and set up correctly. It can’t be overstated how much those three increase Skyrim’s stability.
Note the issues between Crash Fixes and MNC. Check MNCs support thread for detailed instructions and solutions.
