California teen driver arrested after fatal crash she reportedly livestreamed

California teen driver arrested after fatal crash she reportedly livestreamed

The California Highway Patrol says 18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez was driving the auto Friday when it veered onto the shoulder of a road in the San Joaquin Valley.

Her more youthful kin, Jacqueline Sanchez, passed on at the scene and specialists are presently investigating the realistic video that they trust demonstrates the lethal occasions unfurling.

Obdulia is being held on vehicular manslaughter while under the influence and DUI charges in the Merced County Jail.

Seja only suffered some cuts to her legs, but she lost a friend she met seven months ago on Instagram - the same platform that captured the crash for everyone to see. "I did not mean to kill you, sweetie", Sanchez says in the clip. "What I think - she knows she's done something wrong".

While she was distracted driving, Sanchez veered onto the right shoulder of a California highway and over-corrected, causing the vehicle to swerve across lanes before crashing through a wire fence and overturning into an empty field. The video kept going through the entire crash and afterward. A video before the crash showed her singing and dancing along with music as she drove while the two passengers were not wearing seat belts.

At no point during this horrific ordeal did she decide it was time to turn the camera off. The footage seems to capture the vehicle's passengers screaming, and then chaos, before it shows Sanchez apparently kneeling beside her mortally wounded sister on the ground.

"My sister is (expletive) dying", Obdulia says in the video. Look. I f***ing love my sister to death.




"This is last thing that I wanted to happen, OK". I know that I will go to jail for the rest of my days.

Rob Carroll, a chief deputy in the Merced County District Attorney's Office, said he had not yet seen the video but expected it would form a key piece of evidence.

One of Sanchez's social media followers, Mary Hernandez, recorded the live stream as it was being broadcasted and posted it to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving.

According to the station, the father said he didn't know how to feel.

The livestream, which has since been removed from social media, shows Obdulia Sanchez, 18, behind the wheel of a auto.

The crash has left the parents of the girls devastated, KFSN Channel 30 reports.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover her younger sister's funeral expenses. They said Jaqueline Sanchez, was supposed to celebrate her quincenera Sunday. In the past two years she had been in the custody of Child Protective Services.
