Woman Dies In Car Crash Minutes After Posting To Facebook.. Well, I Think We All Knew It Wasn’t Long Until Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ Literally Killed Someone


High Point, N.C. resident Courtney Sanford was driving to work when she decided to share some updates on Facebook, and post a few selfies. A minute later, she was dead from a head-on collision.

At 8:33 a.m., the 32-year-old posted “The happy song makes me HAPPY!” on her Facebook. At 8:34, police got a call about the crash, said High Point Police Lt. Chris Weisner.


Investigators say Sanford crossed the median and drove head-on into a truck, her car catching on fire. She also caused the truck to run off the road and hit a tree, though the driver was uninjured.

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

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

It was only a matter of time before Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ literally killed someone.. It’s so goddamn catchy! One minute you’re dancing in your car to ‘Happy’, the next minute, you’re crossing the median and hitting a truck head on.. sad.

Nothing good happens in the Carolinas.. I say it all the time.
