An 18-year-old alleged drunk driver broadcast a fatal car crash on social media that took her little sister’s life.
The disturbing footage, reportedly streamed on Instagram and obtained by Buzzfeed, Daily Mail, and the New York Post, allegedly shows Obdulia Sanchez, 18, driving while intoxicated while her 14-year-old sister and another teen girl are in the backseat of the car. As Sanchez records herself driving, the car suddenly swerves and the footage goes blurry as the car flips over. But even as Sanchez emerges from the car and sees that her sister is likely fatally injured, she continues to record and speak to the camera.
According to Buzzfeed, police have accused Sanchez of driving under the influence in Stockton, California, on Friday evening before she lost control of her car at about 6:40 p.m. The driver reportedly crossed multiple lanes in her Buick and crashed through a wire fence before overturning in a field. Her 14-year-old sister Jacqueline Sanchez was reportedly thrown from the car.
After the devastating crash, during which the girls can be heard screaming, Sanchez continues to record while attending to her sister, who is shown gravely injured.
WARNING: The following video footage is extremely disturbing and graphic. Please use discretion.
In the video, the woman believed to be Sanchez speaks to the camera as her mortally wounded sister lies on the ground, and another female in the grainy video appears to be trying to flag down help.
Sanchez says she knows she is going to jail for life and apologizes for what she has done.
“Jacqueline, please wake up. This is the last thing I wanted to happen… I killed my sister … I don’t care. I killed my sister. I know I’m going to prison, but I don’t care. I’m sorry, baby … rest in peace, sweetie.”
The driver continues to speak before the video ends:
“Wake up baby, I’m f***ing sorry baby, I did not mean to kill you sweetie.”
CBS News reports that Sanchez was arrested on suspicion of DUI and and vehicular manslaughter. Her 14-year-old sister was killed and the other teen girl was seriously injured.
