Stockton teen charged in fatal crash recorded on Instagram

 

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors have filed criminal charges against a California teen who livestreamed a car accident on Instagram that killed her younger sister.


The Merced County District Attorney's Office on Wednesday charged 18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez of Stockton with vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving.


Authorities say Sanchez recorded herself driving and then losing control of a car that rolled over Friday northwest of Fresno.


In the video, she's seen leaning over the body of the girl, trying to shake her awake and saying she was sorry.


Authorities say 14-year-old Jacqueline Sanchez died in the crash.


Obdulia Sanchez is expected in court today to hear the charges.

 

Neither Sanchez nor an attorney representing her could be reached for comment.
