Courtney Ann Sanford

Reported by Krystle Crossman

Cell phone use while driving has run rampant all through the country. Many states are now banning texting and driving and some are even banning cell phone use altogether.

A 32-year-old North Carolina woman felt the unfortunate consequences of using a cell phone while on the road. Courtney Ann Sanford was taking multiple selfies of herself and posting to Facebook while she was driving. Just seconds after making a post about how Pharrell’s smash hit “Happy” makes her happy, she ran head-on into a truck and died. She crossed the median while looking at her phone and ran straight into a truck that was driven by a 73-year-old man. Sanford’s car instantly caught on fire and the man’s truck hit a tree. The man was not seriously injured in the crash. Sanford was pronounced dead at the scene. The police in High Point, N.C. said that her status was posted on Facebook at 8:33 a.m. and then at 8:34 a.m. there was a call to 911 about the crash. Just a second was all it took for this young woman’s life to be over for a Facebook status update that could have waited until she’d reached her destination.

Texting and driving has become such an issue all over the world that there are multiple PSAs that have been made to try and scare people into leaving the cell phones alone while operating a vehicle. One of the most graphic PSAs comes from Britain. It shows four teenagers in a car, as the driver texts about a boy. She crosses the center line and slams into another car which sets off a chain reaction accident. Her friends are killed; a baby in another car is killed; and many others are injured. It is a very graphic PSA but certainly gets the point across.
