An 18-year-old woman from Stockton, California has been arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter in connection with a crash that killed her 14-year-old sister-and she livestreamed the entire incident on Instagram.
Obdulia Sanchez complained of pain in her chest and right knee, according to CHP.
Obdulia Sanchez was driving her sister, Jacqueline Sanchez, and another girl westbound down Henry Miller Road around 6:40 p.m. Friday.
Obdulia Sanchez, 18, was singing and listening to music with her sister and another 14-year-old girl in the backseat when the vehicle she was driving suddenly veered off the roadway. "I f****** killed my sister, OK?" A female is heard in the video saying, "Hey, everybody, if I go to fucking jail for life, you already know why". "I love you rest in peace, sweetie". The video has been removed from Instagram but had been shared widely on social media.
Records show she is being held on a $300,000 (£230,000) bond following Friday's crash.
Obdulia then repeatedly asks her sister to wake up and reiterates that she did not mean to kill her. "Wake up, baby".
A United States teen livestreamed a deadly auto crash on Instagram and then filmed her mortally wounded sister in the aftermath. "This is the last thing I wanted to happen to us but it just did", she said.
