Car Crash

Cara Johnson, who lives in the Vancouver, Wash. area, routinely live-tweets local car crashes and road incidents that come across the police scanner and Twitter accounts as a public service. What happened Wednesday could only be described as devastating.

Her husband, Craig, had left early from work.

Trooper William Finn, a spokesman with the Washington State Patrol, was tweeting about an accident on Vancouver’s Interstate 205. The car in question crossed the centerline striking an oncoming truck.

At 2:11 p.m. PT, Finn tweeted, “Vancouver – SB 205 @ Padden – Fatality collision. WB Padden to SB 205 is closed. Right lane SB 205 also closed in area. Use alt route!”

Craig was supposed to be on the same road the where accident occurred. After tweeting many of the details out on her account, Cara began to worry as her husband was late and wasn’t answering his phone.

Her tweets slowly escalated in panic as she tried desperately to reach him.

At 3:50 p.m. PT her fears were confirmed and her last tweet read, “it’s him. he died.”

Craig had left early from work not feeling well and suffered from epilepsy. He was the only fatality in the crash. The woman driving the other vehicle was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The car crash is still under investigation.
