Wife Unknowingly Live-Tweets The Accident That Killed Her Husband

What started out as few irritated tweets  about a traffic accident quickly turned into heartache and tragedy for one woman as she learned the man killed in the accident was in fact her husband.

On Wednesday, December 4th, Caran Johnson fired up her smart phone and did what she had done many times before, by live tweeting information about a traffic accident in Vancouver, Washington.

As news outlets began reporting that there had been a fatality in the accident, Johnson started pondering the possibility that her husband might be involved as he followed that same route home every day.

It was after midnight that Johnson returned to Twitter to give her followers one last message before eventually locking down her Twitter account and protecting her tweets.
