Teenage driver livestreams deadly crash

2017-07-25 07:55

California - A teenage driver lost control of her car while she was livestreaming on Instagram and recorded part of the crash that killed her younger sister in California.

After a gap in the livestream, the driver is seen standing over the body of the dead girl, saying she was sorry and it was the last thing she wanted to happen. She also says she will go to prison but doesn't care.

The California Highway Patrol says 18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez was driving the car on Friday when it veered onto the shoulder of a road in the San Joaquin Valley.

It says she over-corrected, causing the vehicle to swerve and overturn into a field.

While live streaming, she said: "My sister is f***ing dying, look my sister is dead. I don't give a f**k. Man we about to die, this is the last thing I wanted to happen to us but it just did.

"Joselyn, please wake up ...!"

"I f**king killed my sister okay, I know im going to jail for life, I understand that.

"This is the last thing I wanted to happen okay, alright."  

"I dont f**king care though, Im going to hold it down, I love you, rest in peace sweety. If you dont survive im f**king sorry."

Immediately thereafter, she repeatedly apologises for what had happened and pleads with her sister to wake up.

"Baby, wake up baby! wake up baby im f**king sorry, I didnt mean to kill you sweeety, Sweety Im f***ing sorry, please wake up!" 

Relatives confirmed to KFSN-TV  that Sanchez was livestreaming at the time of the crash that killed her 14-year-old sister.

The station says the livestream was recorded by someone who viewed it.

Authorities did not know if Sanchez has an attorney.

The CHP is examining the video as part of its investigation.

An earlier post before the crash:

A Facebook user also posted an image via Snapchat account, suggesting that alcohol had been consumed prior to the crash.

Her parents have since started fundraising for the funeral of deceased Jacqueline.
