Posting to Facebook


There isn't any better, but very tragic story to illustrate why you need to get off your phone while driving. One minute before a 32 year-old-woman died in a tragic car accident in High Point North Carolina, she posted to Facebook the message that a song made her happy.

One minute you are texting or paying some sort of attention to your phone instead of watching the road and the next minute you could be dead.

Just don't do it!

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.
