A Californian Teen was arrested on Monday, July 24, after she live-streamed a fatal car crash that killed her sister and injured another teen. 18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez was said to be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, which lead to the accident taking place and the death of her 14-year-old sister Jacqueline. However, the shocking part of the accident is that Sanchez live-streamed the whole incident on Instagram.

Car crash live-streamed by teen on Instagram

According to the California Highway Patrol, Obdulia lost control over her 2003 Buick and drove it off the edge of the road before over correcting.

The car went on to crash into a barbed wire fence, as a result of which it flipped over the field. Her sister Jacqueline - along with another girl - were sitting in the backseat of the car and were not wearing seat belts, which is why they were thrown out of the tumbling vehicle.

Moments after the crash, Obdulia was on Instagram Live describing how the incident took place and was reportedly growing more hysterical each passing minute. She went on to say that if she goes to jail, people will know why, after which she adjusted the camera of the smartphone so that she could show her younger sister lying down motionless and bleeding profusely from an evident head injury. While she kept rambling how much she loved her sister and requested her to wake up, not for once did she call for help using her smartphone.

Jacqueline was declared dead shortly after help arrived for the girls.

Vern Warnke from the Merced County Sheriff was quoted saying that the teen was killed when she was thrown out of the car when the vehicle tumbled. The girl’s father Nicandro Sanchez and his wife Gloria saw the video and stated that they think that their eldest daughter is aware of her misdoing and “feels bad for herself” as she killed her own sister.

The video showed that Obdulia was wearing a red-colored baseball cap and was rapping to music played on the radio as she drove the car. At the time, it appeared that she did not have her hands on the wheel.

Car crash video goes viral

The video of Obdulia rambling after the incident went viral after another Stockton resident Mary Hernandez saw it and reposted the same.

In an interview with the media, Hernandez stated that she shared the video to make people aware that these things can exist and people need to be aware of it. However, since then she has received responses that range from gratitude to anger. Hernandez claims that she knew Obdulia through social media and had never met her in real life.
