Obdulia Sanchez, an 18-year old from Merced County in Northern California, was driving a auto her sister and another friend were riding in when she lost control and rolled the vehicle over a fence and into a nearby field. Obdulia Sanchez, 18, remains in the Merced County Jail facing several criminal charges including DUI.

Sanchez was driving Friday night while streaming on Instagram Livewhen she lost control of her vehicle near Los Banos, causing it to overturn in a field, the California Highway Patrol said. The Merced County Sheriff says 14-year-old Jacqueline Sanchez was killed in the crash.

After a gap in the stream, it continued with Sanchez leaning over her sister trying to shake her awake. "This is the last thing I wanted to happen to us, but it just did". Although she too was injured in the wreck, Seja said she really is "affected" by social media, adding "that's what life is now". "I'm sorry baby. I'ma hold it down".

Jacquelin and 14-year-old Manuela Seja were ejected through the back window. "In fact, they encourage it and make a profit of it", he said, pointing to Snapchat's speed filter that shows how fast you are going. He said using a cellphone while driving is a traffic infraction, and that prosecutors must prove that she was intoxicated.

Ceja told investigators she thought Sanchez may have been in shock when she started recording after the crash, the reports say.

Her defense attorney has requested all the information on the case, including medical records and the 911 call made by Sanchez.

Obdulia then moves the camera to show her sister Jacqueline lying motionless and bleeding. "She feels bad for herself, but she killed her own sister". "She was just amusing and she would be amusing", Seja said.

The center has reportedly assisted victims of the largest child abuse cases in the desert, according to the Desert Sun . The former model, who gained prominence as "Lady Blue Eyes", passed away this morning at her California home.

Samrao says Sanchez is devastated about what allegedly happened. The CHP says Sanchez was under the influence when she rolled her vehicle over, into a barbed wire fence and then a field.

The live Instagram video went viral over the weekend after a Mary Hernandez posted it to Facebook - it was subsequently taken down for Community Guidelines violations.

"Wake up baby, I'm f**king sorry baby", she says.

Obdulia Sanchez was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and vehicular manslaughter and remained in jail with bail set at $300,000. Instead of celebrating Jacquelin's confirmation Saturday at their church, the Sanchez family is planning a funeral. Seja, who was not reportedly wearing a seatbelt, sustained a serious injury to her leg in the crash.

"What I think is she knows she's done something wrong, " he told Fresno television station KFSN.

"Instagram highlights all these videos of people doing insane stupid things to young people who already feel a lot of pressure to fit in and look cool", her attorney argued. "She was just amusing".
