Fox News reports that a Washington state woman known for monitoring police scanners unknowingly live-tweeted about a fatal car wreck Wednesday, unaware at first that the victim was her husband.
Caran Johnson, known in Portland-area social-media circles by her @Scancouver Twitter handle, posted "omg that is so horrible" after learning of a two-vehicle collision on I-205 in Vancouver, KOIN.com reported.
Her husband, 47-year-old Craig Johnson, was killed after the car he was driving crossed from the northbound lanes into southbound I-205 and struck a pick-up truck, authorities told the station. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
"You already feel for the people that are involved," Trooper Will Finn told KOIN.com. "This, for me, took it up to the next level. I feel like I somewhat already have a relationship with this person."
Finn, who is responsible for Washington State Patrol's official Twitter feed, said he knows Caran Johnson through social media and saw that she was trying to call her husband after the accident.
"I'm trying not to panic, but my husband left work early and he drives 205 to get home. He's not answering his phone," Johnson posted Wednesday afternoon.
Minutes later, her Twitter postings became increasingly frantic: "I am freaking out now," followed by "And now my kids are home from school."
After contacting authorities, Johnson reported that the victim was her husband, tweeting simply, "It's him. He died."
Investigators told KOIN.com they are still probing the cause of the crash. Johnson tweeted earlier Wednesday that she had called her husband's workplace and found out he was "feeling faint" when he left.
A 54-year-old woman driving a second car involved in the accident suffered serious injuries and was taken to a local hospital, according to the report.
