article-2518556-19DB622600000578-800_634x421In a heartbreaking turn of events that unfolded on social media over the course of two hours, a Washington woman unintentionally live-tweeted the car accident that her own husband was fatally injured in.

Caran Johnson, 41, who goes by the Twitter handle @ScanCouver began tweeting about a two-car collision that occurred on Interstate 205 southbound in Vancouver at around 1.40 pm Pacific time on Wednesday.

However, as she updated her followers on the scene of the accident, the state police scanner enthusiast became increasingly worried when she realized her husband, Craig Johnson, 47, would be traveling home on the same route.

Her tweets quickly became harrowing as the frantic mother wrote that not only was her husband late, but he hadn’t answered his phone as she began to suspect the worst – only for her profile to be suddenly updated with the stark words, ‘it’s him. he died.’

Creeping panic: Caran lets her followers know that her mind is racing after her husband fails to return home
