A woman may have been posting to Facebook minutes before she crashed her car and died.

Courtney Ann Sanford, 32, was driving on Business 85 in High Point, North Carolina on Thursday morning when her car crossed the median and crashed head-on into a truck, reports Fox 13 News.  Sanford was killed in the crash; the truck driver survived.

Friends and family of Sanford alerted investigators about a Facebook post she made around the same time as the crash.

“The Facebook text happened at 8:33. We got the call on the wreck at 8:34,” said High Point police department Lt. Chris Weisner.

The Facebook post read: “The Happy Song makes me so HAPPY.”

“In a matter of seconds, a life was over just so she could notify some friends that she was happy,” says Weisner.

Investigators also found by tracing Sanford’s online activity that morning that she had been taking selfies while driving and posting them, reports WGHP Fox 8.

“As sad as it is, it is a grim reminder for everyone… you just have to pay attention while you are in the car,” reminds Weisner.
