California Teen Charged in Fatal Crash Recorded on Instagram

California Teen Charged in Fatal Crash Recorded on Instagram

The Merced County District Attorney's Office filed felony charges today against 18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez of Stockton following a single auto accident on July 21 in Los Banos that claimed the life of Sanchez's 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline Sanchez and injured another 14-year-old passenger.

Obdulia Sanchez is charged with multiple counts of gross vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence in the July 21 crash in Fresno, Calif., according to ABC-affiliate KABC. Inexplicably, she continued to film the gruesome aftermath, posting video of her deceased sister lying in the field live on Instagram. I love my sister this is the last thing I thought was going to happen to us.

"What I think is she knows she's done something wrong", he said. "I'm sorry baby. I'm a hold it down".

Both were ejected and Jacqueline Sanchez died at the scene.

Again, authorities have not confirmed the video is linked to the fatal crash, though it is linked to some of the social media accounts of a person of the same name as the suspect. "I'm just happy she made this", 14-year-old Manuela Seja said.

The teenagers' father, Nicandro Sanchez, told Fresno television station KFSN he has seen the video and that he believes the crash was an accident. They watched the live stream video of the crash and aftermath, and they have no explanation for how it happened.

Obdulia then moves the camera to show her sister Jacqueline lying motionless and bleeding. "I F-ing killed my sister, okay", Obdulia yelled through the phone. Reckless driving, underage drinking, social media - it involves all of the most unsafe things about being a teenager today. "She was just amusing and she would be amusing", Seja said.




Chief Deputy District Attorney Harold Nutt called Obdulia Sanchez's behavior before, during and after the crash "disturbing and shocking".

ABC30 reports Mary Hernandez of Stockton recorded the Instagram story before it disappeared in the 24-hour window.

Reports filed Wednesday by California Highway Patrol investigators describe Sanchez as "belligerent" and said she repeatedly spit at officers, used racial slurs and kicked one emergency responder from Riggs Ambulance in the face. "They know nothing about her history, or her history in the foster care system, or that she was a victim of sex trafficking". Sanchez is now in the Merced County Jail on charges of vehicular manslaughter while under the influence and DUI. Seja, who was not reportedly wearing a seatbelt, sustained a serious injury to her leg in the crash.

"Jacqueline, please wake up", Sanchez said in the video.

The Instagram post ends with her kneeling next to her dead sister.

Relatives have set up a GoFundMe page to pay for the funeral of Jacqueline Sanchez. She was just amusing and she would be amusing.
