A California father has spoken out after his 18-year-old daughter allegedly caused a crash, under the influence, that killed his 14-year-old daughter. The elder sister, Obdulia Sanchez, live-streamed the crash on Instagram, and recorded herself next to her dead sister Jacqueline (pictured below), stating, “I killed my sister, but I don't care. I'm sorry baby. I'ma hold it down."
“I don’t know how to feel. My one daughter killed my other daughter,” their father, Nicandro Sanchez, told ABC affiliate KFSN. He said he watched the disturbing video and he hopes it is an accident. Nicandro Sanchez added that he knows his daughter drinks, but it's not around him.
A California Highway Patrol report obtained by People stated that “alcohol is believed to be a factor in this collision.”
According to International Business Times, Jacqueline Sanchez and another minor were sitting in the backseat and not wearing seatbelts. The other girl in the car, who can be seen waving for help in the video, has been identified as 14-year-old Manuela Seja according to KFSN. She was injured and required 25 stitches on her right leg. She and Jacqueline Sanchez were in a relationship.

Obdulia Sanchez is currently being held on $300,000 bond on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, causing injury, and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover her younger sister’s funeral expenses. Jacqueline Sanchez was gearing up to celebrate her quinceañera — her 15th birthday — before her young life ended.
