A North Carolina woman was feeling happy one minute, and the next minute she was dead in a fiery car crash - all because she decided to type a Facebook post as she was driving.

32-year-old Courtney Ann Sanford was killed when her car crossed the median, slammed into a truck and burst into flames. Just one minute before the 911 call came in, she had posted an update on her Facebook page saying, "The happy song makes me HAPPY," referring to the hit song by Pharrell Williams. An officer with the High Point (North Carolina) Police Department says, "In a matter of seconds, a life was over just so she could notify some friends that she was happy."
