Teen Livestreamed Sisters’ Bodies Following Road Accident
According to the court documents, last year, on the 21st of July, Obdulia Sanchez was driving back to Stockton. She was not alone in the vehicle but accompanied by Jacqueline, her 14-year-old sister, and Manuela Seja, Jacqueline’s girlfriend.
The California highway patrol agents who arrived at the scene declared that while driving home, Sanchez whipped out her phone and started livestreaming her behind-the-wheel performance. The clip, which will later become viral, shows Sanchez dancing and singing while cruising along the California highway.
Also, the authorities revealed that neither Sanchez nor the other vehicle occupants were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. The movie, which was livestreamed on the teen’s social media account, takes a turn for the worse, as Sanchez loses control of her vehicle, which crashes a nearby barbed-wire fence, before overturning into a field.
According to the authorities, following the accident, Sanchez kept livestreaming for a full 90 minutes. The last minutes of the video show Sanchez standing over her sister’s body, begging her to wake up.
Unfortunately, Jacqueline Sanchez was declared dead at the scene, whereas her girlfriend escaped with a minor leg injury. At the time of the accident, Sanchez had a blood alcohol level of .106.
Although the teen was sentenced to six years and four months in prison for DUI, endangering a child, and vehicular manslaughter, Ramniko Samrao, the teen’s attorney declared that the teen might be released by the end of this year considering her past.
