Sanford crossed the median and drove head-on into a truck, causing her car to catch fire. She also caused the truck to run off the road and hit a tree, though the driver was uninjured.
“In a matter of seconds, a life was over just so she could notify some friends that she was happy,” High Point police Lt. Chris Weisner said.
He added: “As sad as it is, it is a grim reminder for everyone… you just have to pay attention while you are in the car.”
