MERCED, Calif. - CBS SF & AP- An 18-year-old woman has been arrested in Central California on suspicion of causing a deadly crash that was recorded live on Instagram.
Obdulia Sanchez was booked into the Merced County Jail on suspicion of DUI and vehicular manslaughter after Friday’s crash north of Los Banos that killed her 14-year-old sister and badly injured another 14-year-old girl.
The California Highway Patrol said Sanchez was driving a Buick Century when it veered onto the right shoulder of a road. She over-corrected the turn, which caused the vehicle to swerve across lanes, crash through a wire fence and overturn into a field.
Relatives confirmed to KFSN-TV that Sanchez filmed a video before, during and after the crash that was posted on Instagram.
“I killed my sister, but I don’t care,” Obdulia said on Instagran. “I killed my sister. I know I’m going to prison, but I don’t care. I’m sorry baby. I’m a hold it down.”
The Instagram post ends with her kneeling next to her dead sister.
“Wake up baby, I’m f**king sorry baby,” she says. “I did not mean to kill you sweetie.”
The CHP was examining the video as part of the investigation.
Obdulia was being held on vehicular manslaughter while under the influence and DUI charges in the Merced County Jail.
