An 18-Year-Old Is Accused Of Driving Drunk And Livestreaming When She Crashed And Killed Her Sister
An 18-year-old was accused of driving drunk and livestreaming on Instagram when she veered off the road on Friday, crashing the car and killing her 14-year-old sister, officials said.
Authorities say Obdulia Sanchez, from Stockton, California, was driving under the influence of alcohol around 6:40 p.m. when she lost control of the Buick, swerved across lanes, crashing through a barbed wire fence and overturning in a field, ejecting her sister, Jacqueline Sanchez, and another 14-year-old girl who sustained “major injuries,” California Highway Patrol Sergeant Darin Heredia told BuzzFeed News on Sunday.
The two teen girls were sitting in the back seat and not wearing seatbelts, according to the CHP report.
Before crashing, Sanchez had been recording herself singing along to music and flipping off the camera, capturing glimpses of the two younger teens in the back as she turns her phone from herself onto the empty road. The camera then goes blurry and red when the car swerves and screams and sounds of metal scratching can be heard.
Sanchez screams Jacqueline’s name before she faces the camera while positioning it so that her sister’s body can be seen lying in a field behind her.
