Report: Teen who live streamed deadly crash denied lower bail
FRESNO, Calif. - A teenager accused of driving under the influence and causing a deadly car crash while live streaming on social media will remain behind bars after a judge refused to lower her bail Friday.
Obdulia Sanchez, 18, had asked a judge to either release her or to reduce her bail from $560,000 after she was arrested for the deadly crash that claimed the life of her sister. Based on the serious nature of the charges, and a prior reckless driving offense, the judge refused to lower it, according to KFSN.
The District Attorney said the bail schedule is set strictly according to charges and this case was no different-- he wants her to stay in jail.
Sanchez was streaming live on Instagram when she crashed her vehicle with two unrestrained teenagers in the passenger seats. The vehicle flipped over after it veered off the roadway, killing Sanchez's 14-year-old sister and seriously injuring the other passenger.
The Instagram video continued to roll through the entire ordeal, recording Sanchez as she sat up next to her sister's body.
"I killed my sister. I know I'm going to prison, but I don't care," Sanchez said in the video. "I'm sorry baby. I'm a hold it down."
Earlier this week the suspect's blood alcohol content was revealed which was .10, but the public defender said a test was not given at the scene. He also said during Sanchez's conversation with dispatchers she did not seem that impaired.
Sanchez will be back in court next month.
