Teen Arrested After Live-Streaming Fatal Car Crash
The 18-year-old girl who went live on Instagram and streamed the fatal car crash that killed her 14-year-old baby sister and badly injured another teen is now behind bars.
Obdulia Sanchez was arrested and booked into the Merced County Jail on suspicion of DUI and vehicular manslaughter.
Via CBS San Francisco:
The California Highway Patrol said Sanchez was driving a Buick Century when it veered onto the right shoulder of a road. She over-corrected the turn, which caused the vehicle to swerve across lanes, crash through a wire fence and overturn into a field.
Relatives confirmed to KFSN-TV that Sanchez filmed a video before, during and after the crash that was posted on Instagram.
“I killed my sister, but I don’t care,” Obdulia said on Instagran. “I killed my sister. I know I’m going to prison, but I don’t care. I’m sorry baby. I’m a hold it down.”
The Instagram post ends with her kneeling next to her dead sister.
“Wake up baby, I’m f**king sorry baby,” she says. “I did not mean to kill you sweetie.”
The CHP was examining the video as part of the investigation.
Obdulia was being held on vehicular manslaughter while under the influence and DUI charges in the Merced County Jail.
The video of the accident is much too graphic to post.
When she’s sitting in that cell and reality of what she’s done sinks in…she’ll care.
