Woman Who Livestreamed Crash That Killed 14-Year-Old Sister Is Released From Prison
Obdulia Sanchez continued filming after the crash, as her sister lay dying in a field.
The California woman who livestreamed a DUI car crash, and continued filming as her sister lay dying in a field, has been released on parole, authorities said.
Obdulia Sanchez, now 20, was released Sept. 21 after being sentenced last year to six years and four months in prison. She was paroled after gaining credits for good behavior and completion of a rehabilitation program, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
She was 18 when she started livestreaming a car trip in which she was driving. Her 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline, was in the passenger seat, and a friend was riding in the back.
Sanchez lost control of the car, careened across several lanes and crashed into a field, authorities said. The vehicle overturned and both sisters, who weren't wearing seat belts, were ejected.
The elder sister, whose blood alcohol content was .106 more than an hour after the crash, continued filming. Jacqueline's bloodied and battered face filled the frame as Sanchez says, "I f***ing love my sister to death. I don't give a f***. We about to die. This is the last thing I wanted to happen to us but it just did."
The other passenger suffered a serious leg injury.
Sanchez is seen kissing her sister's face. "I killed my sister, but I don't care. I killed my sister. I know I'm going to prison, but I don't care. I'm sorry, baby. Imma hold it down. Rest in peace, sweetie," she says in the video.
Jacqueline was pronounced dead at the scene. The horrifying footage garnered international media attention.
The livestream was posted to social media by someone who knew Sanchez, and filmed a copy of the video before it disappeared from Sanchez's Instagram feed, authorities said.
Sanchez was convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter, drunken driving and child endangerment.
