Obdulia Sanchez caught the horrifying moment that she wrecked her car on Instagram Live. Also caught on camera was the disturbing way she announced her sister, Jacqueline, was dead.
As KSEE reports, the 18-year-year admitted to filming herself driving many times on Snapchat and Instagram without crashing her car, but her video on July 21 ended differently.Screenshot/KSEE
Sanchez was under the influence when she lost control of her car, rolling it over into a barbed wire fence. Jacqueline and another 14-year-old passenger, who hurt her leg, were both thrown from the car; neither was wearing a seat belt.
According to NBC News, the livestream captured Sanchez reacting to the crash when she dialed 911:
“I f—–g killed my sister, OK? I know I’m going to jail for life. This is the last thing I wanted to happen, OK? I don’t f—–g care though, I’m going to hold it down. Rest in peace, sweetie. If you don’t survive, I am so f—–g sorry.”
The heartless response to her sister’s bloody death enraged viewers.

Now, she is showing remorse. Sanchez told KSEE from jail:
“I didn’t even know I looked like a monster — like I look like a freaking horrible monster. That was not my intention at all.”
Sanchez defended her unemotional response for being behind the wheel with the record button going in what ended up being the last minutes of her sister’s life:
“Just because I’m not crying a river now on the phone, [it] doesn’t mean I’m not remorseful.”
And she explained that driving around while livestreaming is nothing new. She defended herself for having it running before, during, and after the crash:
“We do it all the time — all the time. Trust me, it’s like a reflex. Like I haven’t crashed, you know?”
She also pointed out that she isn’t the only one who has developed this new driving habit — it’s common for young people to engage in this practice. Sanchez said:
“Everybody does it. Everybody does. They take Snapchats. Everybody does it. Why not? People take video of them in cars like all the time. And I’m only 18 — we’re still young.”
Not many agree with her justification. In fact, since the accident, she has received death threats, which she believes are most hurtful to her parents.Screenshot/KSEE
“You’re only going to make my parents suffer more. You’re not going to help anybody else. My parents are grieving. They want me back home. The house is super lonely without us. We were like the joy of the house.”
With that being said, Sanchez regrets what happened. She said would do that day differently if she could:
“If I would’ve known that was going to happen that day, I would’ve never left the house — ever.”
Sanchez currently remains behind bars, being held on $300,000 bail. She has pleaded not guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving.
