Woman driving while posting to Facebook dies in car accident

HIGH POINT, N.C., April 27 (UPI) —

A 32-year-old North Carolina woman died in a car accident Thursday just moments after she used her cell phone to post on Facebook.




Police in High Point, N.C., said Courtney Ann Sanford posted a message on Facebook at 8:33 a.m. and one minute later the car accident was reported. She was driving.




"The happy song makes me HAPPY," Sanford wrote of the hit song by Pharrell Williams.




"In a matter of seconds, a life was over just so she could notify some friends that she was happy," said High Point Police Lt. Chris Weisner.




Sanford drove her vehicle across a grass median and hit a truck. The truck driver was uninjured.




"As sad as it is, it is a grim reminder for everyone … you just have to pay attention while you are in the car," Weisner said.
