Woman posts to Facebook moments before fatal car wreck

Police said they believe a woman in North Carolina was posting to Facebook just seconds before she was killed in a fatal car crash.

MyFox8 reported that the crash in High Point, North Carolina, located in the north-central part of the state, happened on Thursday morning, April 24, 2014. Investigators say 32-year-old Courtney Ann Sanford got into a head-on collision when she crossed the median and crashed into a truck. Her car went off the road and caught fire.

Police said the truck in the crash ran off the road as well and it hit a tree. The truck driver was not injured.

According to the report, investigators found out that Sanford had posted to Facebook just moments before the crash.

“The Facebook text happened at 8:33 a.m. We got the call on the wreck at 8:34 a.m.,” said Lt. Chris Weisner with the High Point Police Department, according to MyFox8.

Investigators said the Facebook post said: “The happy song makes me HAPPY,” according to the report. It was discovered that she had also posted photos as she drove down the roadway.

“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.
