The girlfriend of the 14-year-old Stockton, California girl killed in livestreamed vehicle crash is blaming not the victim's sister who was behind the wheel, but social media, for Jacqueline Sanchez's death.

Obdulia Sanchez has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and gross vehicular manslaughter in connection with the crash.

Sanchez, 18, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to multiple charges of gross vehicular manslaughter and DUI in a video arraignment in Merced Superior Court.

A young woman is accused of killing her teenage sister in a auto wreck and streaming it on Instagram - actions that leave even investigators in disbelief.

Samrao said Sanchez believes she killed her 14-year-old sister, but that it's not clear she committed a crime. The video shows the exact moment when she loses control of the vehicle, and a few moments later she shows the body of her sister and says, "I ... killed my sister, OK". "At first we didn't even want to believe it was real", she said. "I think she doesn't know what happened", Nicandro said. I'm sorry, baby. I'ma hold it down. rest in peace, sweetie.

Jacqueline Sanchez died in the crash. Authorities say she was ejected Friday from the vehicle that flipped over after veering off a San Joaquin Valley road.

Ceja told investigators she thought Sanchez may have been in shock when she started recording after the crash, the reports say. They watched the live stream video of the crash and aftermath, and they have no explanation for how it happened. Her parents, however, told the television station Jacqueline was going to be confirmed in a Catholic church. "She feels bad for herself, but she killed her own sister". Reckless driving, underage drinking, social media - it involves all of the most risky things about being a teenager today. That's what life is now, " Seja said.

Samrao says Sanchez is devastated about what allegedly happened.

A mother and father in California are reeling from the worst kind of tragedy imaginable right now: a auto accident that left one of their teenage daughters dead and the other in jail on suspicion of drunk driving and manslaughter.

Earlier this year, a 12-year-old Georgia girl live streamed her suicide, sparking a national conversation about the kind of content that's allowed to remain circulating on social media.

Authorities say Obdulia Sanchez, 18, was driving the auto Friday when it veered onto the shoulder of a road about 75 miles (120.7 kilometers) northwest of Fresno. However, she did say the person seen in the live video wearing a teal shirt and flagging down help after the crash was her. Because she knows, and that's what I feel. In yellow jail garb and with her hands in cuffs, Sanchez was seen on a small screen as she was read her charges.

Sanchez reportedly lost control of the auto and then attempted to overcorrect when the vehicle struck a fence and flipped over, officials from the California Highway Patrol told KTXL-TV. "Hey, everybody, if I go to f-- jail for life, you already know why", she says. Instead of celebrating Jacquelin's confirmation Saturday at their church, the Sanchez family is planning a funeral. She was just amusing and she would be amusing.
