Caran Johnson is a resident of Washington state known by her Twitter hande @ScanCouver who often live tweets traffic updates that she hears over her police scanner. Yesterday, she had the absolutely jaw-droppingly horrible coincidence of live tweeting her own husband's death on I-205.
Her husband, 47-year-old Craig Johnson, was killed after his car inexplicably crossed from the northbound lanes into southbound I-205 and struck a pick-up truck. He died before help arrived, but there was a long lag between when his wife knew there had been an accident and finding out it was her husband.
Her live tweets are just absolute devastation told in real time, and anyone with children and a spouse they love can relate to her rising panic and grief. They are devastating to read. See below:
