A Southwest Washington woman unknowingly live-tweeted her husband’s fatal car accident Wednesday afternoon.
The collision happened about 1:40 p.m. Wednesday on southbound Interstate 205. Caran Johnson, who tweets using the handle @scancouver, is known for tweeting news in the city of Vancouver, Wash., while listening to police scanners.
She re-tweeted information about the accident from the local newspaper, then details from the State Patrol outlining closures around the collision scene.
“I’m trying not to panic, but my husband left work early and he drives 205 to get home,” Johnson tweeted at 2:17 p.m. about her husband, Craig. “He’s not answering his phone.”
