Teen who filmed dying sister after killing her in drink driving crash is jailed

Written by admin

A teenager has been jailed for more than six years after she live-streamed the moment she killed her sister in a drink driving crash.

Obdulia Sanchez continued to film on Instagram as her 14-year-old sister Jacqueline lay dying after being thrown from the car in Los Banos, California.

The 19-year-old was sentenced yesterday after being convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI and child endangerment stemming from the July crash.

The car driven by Sanchez veered onto the shoulder of a road in Los Banos, about 100 miles south of San Francisco.

Authorities say she overcorrected, causing the vehicle to swerve and overturn, ejecting and killing her 14-year-old sister.

The Instagram video shows Obdulia Sanchez lean over a motionless body and say: ‘My sister is dead — I don’t give a fuck. This is the last thing I wanted to happen to us, but it just did.’

Throughout the video, Jacqueline’s sister repeatedly asks her to ‘wake up’, adding: ‘I did not mean to kill you.’ She then tells her sister to ‘rest in peace’.

Sheriff Vern Warnke said: ‘She was in the back seat of the vehicle and allegedly unseatbelted, and upon the vehicle rolling over, it ejected her and killed her.’

Another young teenager was also in the car and badly injured, reports ABC 30.

Jacqueline was about to celebrate her quincenera — the Hispanic tradition of honoring someone’s coming of age at 15-years-old.
