COPS arrested a man after graphic photos of a car crash that left a woman dead were posted on Facebook.
Lizzy Keenan, 30, was a passenger in a Vauxhall Corsa that hit a wall.
Distressing images taken at the scene in Chellaston, Derbys, on Monday were posted on the social network.
They were shared at least 70 times before one user reported them to police.
Derbyshire Police yesterday confirmed the arrest. A force spokesman said: “A 44-year-old man has been arrested under the malicious communications act in connection with social media posts during the aftermath of the recent fatal collision in Chellaston.
“The arrest has been made after photographs posted on Facebook caused distress to the public.”
