Teen driver livestreamed crash that killed her little sister, police say

Obdulia Sanchez (above) was taken into custody after Friday's crash that killed her 14-year-old sister and severely injured another 14-year-old girl.

The driver, Obdulia Sanchez (pic), crashed on July 21 in Los Banos, about 465 km north of Los Angeles, the California Highway Patrol said.

Sitting beside his wife, Gloria, Nicandro Sanchez spoke with the news station, saying his older daughter, Obdulia Sanchez, is trying to make sense of Friday's crash.

Sanchez was arrested on felony charges of driving under the influence and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and has been booked into 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.

Mr Sanchez said she had a hard childhood and graduated from high school a year ago. At times, the video appears to show Sanchez with both hands off the wheel.

The horrific video is very disturbing and, at several points, the uncensored version shows the dead girl lying on the ground as her sister speaks to the camera. Then someone screams and the footage turns red and blurry and becomes noisy.

"I think she don't know what's happened", Nicandro Sanchez told KFSN-TV.

"I fucking love my sister to death". In the moment of panic, she doesn't leave her phone and decides to profess her love for her sister while freaking out that she may go to jail for life for the "last thing she wanted to happen".

"Jacqueline, please wake up!" "I killed my sister, but I don't care", Obdulia said in the video.

'I know I'm going to prison, but I don't care.

An unnamed California Highway Patrol officer told WFSN that the Instagram video left police shaken.

Mary Hernandez, of Stockton, who saw the live stream, chose to record it while uncertain if the stunning film was genuine.

"I mean no disrespect to their family for posting it", she said.

Jacqueline was supposed to celebrate her quinceanera on Sunday, according to a GoFundMe page that has been set up to help cover the expenses of the deceased teenager's funeral. Her family said she graduated high school past year. While her younger sister Jacqueline Sanchez was killed, the other girl sustained heavy injuries. The CHP declined to identify her because she is a minor.

Obdulia Sanchez is seen in a photo released by the Merced County Sheriff Department.
