California teen driver arrested after fatal crash she reportedly livestreamed

The driver filmed herself singing and gesturing to the camera before the deadly crash

An 18-year-old girl living in California, the USA, was arrested Monday after livestreaming on social media when she was driving, causing a deadly auto crash, China's Xinhua news agency reported.

Obdulia Sanchez apparently was live-streaming on Instagram in the moments leading up to the crash. The other girl in the vehicle, who can be seen waving for help in the video, has been identified as 14-year-old Manuela Seja according to KFSN. "I did not mean to kill you, Sweetie", she is heard saying as she shakes her sister. Both passengers, who police said were not wearing seat belts, were ejected.

Moments later the recording becomes blurry as deputies said Sanchez rolled the auto off the road and crashed. I know I'm going to jail for life. "I'm sorry baby. I'ma hold it down". I understand that. I don't f**king care, though.

Obdulia lost control of her 2003 Buick, drove off the edge of the road and then over-corrected resulting in the vehicle crashing into a barbed-wire fence and flipping over in a field, according to ABC affiliate KFSN. Investigators say they asked her what happened and read her her Miranda Rights.

Ms Sanchez Estrada, meanwhile, was sitting in the back of the auto without a seat belt and was killed when she was ejected from the vehicle. A minute later, she loses control as she's trying to balance her phone on the dash, and the frame dissolves into a cacophony of spinning, crunching metal until the phone comes to rest in the grass. CHP investigators did not disclose Sanchez's blood alcohol content at the time of the crash.


She also says she will go to prison but doesn't care.

She remained in custody Monday in Merced County on suspicion of drunken driving and manslaughter, according to booking records.

"People need to know these things can happen", Ms Hernandez said, adding that she had received a range of responses from anger to gratitude.

The station says the live stream was recorded by someone who viewed it. Manuela Seja was in the back seat with her friend, Jacquelin Sanchez.

According to a cousin of the family, the young women were preparing for a quinceanera, a traditional celebration that in Mexico marks the 15th birthday of a young girl and her passage into adulthood. She veered onto the shoulder, overcorrected, then went into a field.
