Investigators say 32-year-old Courtney Ann Sanford from North Carolina crossed a median and crashed head-on into a truck. The truck was run off the road and hit a tree but the gentleman in the car was not injured. Investigators believe Ms. Sanford was posting to Facebook only seconds before she crashed and died.
Ironically her post read: The happy song makes me HAPPY!”
“The Facebook text happened at 8:33 a.m. We got the call on the wreck at 8:34 a.m.,” explains Lt. Chris Weisner, with the High Point Police Department. “In a matter of seconds, a life was over just so she could notify some friends that she was happy.”
“As sad as it is, it is a grim reminder for everyone… you just have to pay attention while you are in the car,” reminds Weisner.
When looking at her social media activity for the day, investigators discovered that she was also posting selfies as she drove down the road. Sanford was wearing a seat belt, but it was not being used properly, investigators said.
