A 32-year-old North Carolina woman is dead after slamming her car head-on into a truck while posting selfies and a Facebook update about how happy she was while listening to a Pharrell song.
Courtney Sanford, of High Point, crossed the center median of a busy road Thursday morning just after making the post, hit a recycling truck and died, police said. Further inspection of her phone revealed pictures posted online only minutes earlier.
The last words Sanford shared with her friends? ‘The happy song makes me HAPPY.’
Authorities said the post, visible only to her friends, was made at 8.33 a.m., the first 911 call received about the crash was one minute later.
‘In a matter of seconds, a life was over just so she could notify some friends that she was happy,’ a police spokesperson told WGHB.
