Woman Dies Posting About 'Happy' While Driving

 

At 8:33am on Thursday morning, Courtney Ann Sanford posted on Facebook, "The Happy Song makes me so HAPPY." At 8:34am, police got a call about a wreck on a North Carolina road—and found Sanford dead. The 32-year-old had crossed the median and collided head-on with a truck, whose driver was not injured. Authorities found that in addition to the "Happy" post, Sanford had been posting selfies as she drove and that her seatbelt wasn't being used properly. "In a matter of seconds, a life was over just so she could notify some friends that she was happy," a police officer said.
