According to a report by the Huffington Post, 32-year-old Courtney Ann Sanford of Clemmons, N.C. took numerous selfies and updated her Facebook status while driving. Shortly before the car wreck on Thursday morning, Sanford updated her status saying, “The happy song makes me HAPPY.” This was likely a reference to the hit song Happy by Pharrell Williams.
Lt. Chris Weisner of High Point Police Department said in a statement, “The Facebook text happened at 8:33 am. We got the call on the wreck at 8:34 am.”
In just a matter of seconds her life came to an end just so she could notify her friends that she was happy. This is a reminder to drivers not to drive while they are distracted.
