Heartbreaking: Woman Accidentally Live-Tweets Her Husband's Death

A Vancouver, Washington woman who enjoyed tweeting about area news, including traffic, under the handle @ScanCouver may have unintentionally live-tweeted a car accident that her husband was fatally injured in.

The tweets take place over a four hour period, and as the day went on, Caran Johnson switched from commenting on the accident to asking news organizations and authorities for help locating her husband, who apparently had not come home on time.

Finally, two hours after the accident, she found out what happened.

Of course, there's a chance it's a hoax. But Johnson has more than 13,000 community-oriented tweets and interacted with local news organizations, who seemed familiar with her.

It began when a local newspaper, the Columbian, tweeted about the accident.

Finally, she found out.
