A woman in High Point, North Carolina, died in a car crash yesterday after her car veered onto the median and into an oncoming truck. Police investigators claim that the crash was a result of her posting about Pharrell’s “Happy” to her Facebook page.
At 8:33, Courtney Ann Sanford shared on her Facebook:
“The Happy Song makes me so HAPPY.”
At 8:34, the High Point Police Department was called with a report of the crash. Further investigation into Sanford’s online activity revealed she was also taking frequent selfies as she drove down the highway.
Sanford was letting her friends know how happy she was at that moment, and sadly that moment was one of her last.
The driver in the truck Sanford hit was not injured.
