A woman killed in a car crash Thursday posted on Facebook moments before the accident, High Point police told the Associated Press Saturday.

Courtney Ann Sanford, 32, died at the scene of the crash around 8:30 a.m. Sanford's 2005 Toyota Corolla was going north on Business 85 when it crossed the median and hit a metal recycling truck heading southbound, police said. The truck ended up hitting a tree. The truck driver wasn't injured.

Lt. Lee Lanier said a look at Sanford's Facebook account showed she had taken pictures of herself and posted them while driving. Investigators also said Sanford wrote, "The happy song makes me HAPPY," but Lanier said it wasn't clear if she was referring to the hit song by Pharrell Williams.

The estimated speed of impact was 45 mph, police said.
