A North Carolina woman died Thursday in a car wreck, apparently moments after posting on Facebook how much she liked "the happy song."
Courney Ann Sanford, 32, of Clemmons, N.C. was driving on Business Route 85 in High Point, N.C., when her car crossed the median and hit a truck, the Winston-Salem Journal reported.
Sanford's car ran off the road and caught fire. She died at the scene. The truck also went off the road and hit a tree but its driver was unhurt.
Sanford had been wearing a seat belt but it wasn't on properly, police said.
Investigators ruled out drugs, alcohol and speed as possible causes of the crash, then learned later Thursday from her friends that Sanford had posted on her Facebook page at 8:33 a.m., High Point police Lt. Chris Weisner told WGHP. That was about a minute before authorities received their first call about the accident, he said.
The post read: "The happy song makes me HAPPY."

Maybe they'll play the Happy Song at her funeral ...
She died doing what she loved — stupid stuff.
Her seat belt wasn't on properly. I wonder if that WOULD have saved her life.
Oh well, she is with her maker now. Thank goodness we don't go to heaven based on our doing stupid stuff.
Weird. That song didn’t do anything for me.
How about “Happy Days Are Here Again”?
Wonder if she was using her hands to ‘clap along’ instead of to steer the car.
Happy, happy, happy.
Now that one makes me happy--as does "Home Made Sunshine".
Then fast forward a few years to WWII with the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B. This version is by the Lennon Sisters.
At least she died with a song on her lips.
Cute. It is tragic when a pretty woman dies.
No wonder the country is in the shape it is in.
Seriously and no one said thank God she didn’t kill an innocent truck driver.
What is the source of the pic you posted? It’s not in the media report.
I see people every day who are looking at their phones going 70 MPH. As negligent as getting behind the wheel drunk.
Yes, people nowadays, especially the millenials, lack so much self control when it comes to social media attention, that they can’t stop from texting when driving a large, dangerous when moving, piece of heavy machinery. God help us all.
I thought they said she was 32, not 52.
