Woman Who Livestreamed Fatal Crash Back in Court Over Another Wreck

Obdulia Sanchez had filmed the car crash that killed her 14-year-old sister in 2017.

The woman who livestreamed a fatal car crash, which she caused and which killed her sister, is back in court over another wreck.

In 2017, Obdulia Sanchez was driving her 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline, and a friend near Fresno, California. She was livestreaming on social media while driving, and when she crashed, she continued filming, even showing her sister's lifeless body.

“I f****** killed my sister. OK? I know I’m going to jail for life. Alright?” she said in the video. 

Sanchez was convicted of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and was sentenced to six years in prison. She served just a little over two years and was recently released.

On Monday, she was back in court after police said she ran a stop sign before leading officers on a chase that ended with her crashing along Interstate 5. Police said she had a loaded gun in her car.

“This tells us that she didn’t learn her lessons while she was in prison and that she has no regard for the safety of people on the roadway,” Officer Joe Silva of Stockton Police told Inside Edition. 

While Sanchez awaits prosecution, the district attorney's office called her a flight risk.

She appeared in court Monday with a tattoo of her late sister’s name on her neck. Sanchez is due back in court next month and will remain in jail on $300,000 bond.
