(Newser) – At 8:33am on Thursday morning, Courtney Ann Sanford posted on Facebook, "The Happy Song makes me so HAPPY." At 8:34am, police got a call about a wreck on a North Carolina road—and found Sanford dead. The 32-year-old had crossed the median and collided head-on with a truck, whose driver was not injured. Authorities found that in addition to the "Happy" post, Sanford had been posting selfies as she drove; the Winston-Salem Journal also reports that her seatbelt wasn't being used properly. "In a matter of seconds, a life was over just so she could notify some friends that she was happy," a police officer tells WGHP.

One would have hoped at her age she'd have been smarter and a bit less into herself

Good one less person to dumb down the gene pool. Nothing to see here just Darwism at work.
