A woman died in a car crash just seconds after posting on Facebook about how happy Pharrell’s song “Happy” made her.

Courtney Ann Sanford veered across a median in High Point, North Carolina on Thursday, crashing head-on into a truck.

She was killed; the truck driver was not injured.

Investigators say that Sanford likely died because she was posting to Facebook in the moments before she lost control of the vehicle.

She wrote, “The Happy Song makes me so HAPPY.”

“The Facebook text happened at 8:33. We got the call on the wreck at 8:34,” a police official told local media.

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

Truly horrible, and a cautionary tale about the dangers of social media-distracted driving.
