New Delhi: A Vancouver-area woman, well known in local social-media circles for her tweets on Clark County traffic under the handle @ScanCouver, appeared to have unwittingly live-tweeted a fatal crash that killed her husband.
Johnson began tweeting about the two-vehicle collision shortly after it happened at 1:41 p.m. Within minutes of the crash, Caran Johnson - who uses the handle @ScanCouver - took to Twitter to cover the incident.
"This accident sounds horrible," wrote Johnson.
From there, the unimaginable unfolded.
As the afternoon progressed, the Salmon Creek woman's tweets became increasingly frantic. Her husband was late coming home from work and Johnson started to worry that he might have been involved in the deadly crash, according to her Twitter feed.
At 3:50 p.m. she wrote: "it's him. he died."
Below are a series of tweets that capture the crash and Johnson's response in real time:
