‘I f***ing killed my sister’: Teen arrested after live-streaming fatal crash
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.

The footage shows Sanchez singing along to music before the car swerves and overturns in a field.
"Hey, everybody, if I go to f***ing jail for life, you already know why," she can be heard saying after crash and then panning her camera over to her dying sister.
"My sister is f***ing done. Look, I f***ing love my sister to death. I don't give a f***. Man, we about to die," she says before appearing to kiss her sister and then shake her. "This is the last thing I wanted to happen to us, but it just did. Jacqueline, please wake up!"
"I f***ing killed my sister, OK," she says. "I know I'm going to jail for life, all right? I understand that. This is the last thing I wanted to happen, OK? All right, I don't f***ing care at all. I'm going to hold it down. I love you, rest in peace, sweetie. If you don't survive baby, I'm so f***ing sorry. Baby, wake up, baby, wake up, baby."
Sanchez's sister, Jacqueline, was supposed to celebrate her birthday Sunday. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with funeral expenses.
