An 18-year-old woman who allegedly caused a crash that killed her younger sister – a tragic incident which was also live-streamed on Instagram – has been arrested by police in California.
Obdulia Sanchez from Stockton, south of Sacramento, was booked into Mercer County Jail on charges of driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter while under the influence, KFSN reported.
The suspect’s 14-year-old sister was killed in the crash while another girl of the same age from Fresno, south of San Jose, was badly injured.
Neither were wearing seatbelts, according to Mercer County Sheriff Vern Warnke.
Police say they are investigating a graphic video posted on Instagram that may have been taken by Sanchez prior to and during the fatal crash, according to KTXL.
The footage shows Sanchez singing along to music before the car swerves and overturns in a field.
“I killed my sister, but I don’t care,” she can be heard saying after the smash. “I killed my sister. I know I’m going to prison, but I don’t care. I’m sorry baby. I’ma hold it down…. rest in peace, sweetie.”
Sanchez’s sister, Jacqueline, was supposed to celebrate her birthday Sunday. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with funeral expenses.
