The parents of Obdulia Sanchez, who is accused of livestreaming the fateful moment she crashed her car and killed her younger sister, Jacqueline Sanchez, have spoken out about the horrific accident.
Parents Nicandro and Gloria Sanchez are baffled by Friday’s accident in Los Banos, California, that left their oldest daughter Obdulia, 18, in jail and 14-year-old daughter Jacqueline dead. They are saying it has ruined their lives and that Obdulia needs help.
In an interview with ABC 7, Nicandro explained that he doesn’t think Obdulia knew at the time what happened. He believes she feels bad for killing her own sister but can’t fully grasp the situation.
Nicandro revealed that Obdulia graduated high school last year and that in the past two years, she was in the custody of Child Protective Services.
Authorities are continuing to investigate the disturbing video that shows the deadly aftermath.
There is still uncertainty as to whether Obdulia did anything to save her younger sister. Officials say it still is undetermined if she even called 911.
The teen remains in the Merced County Jail on charges of vehicular manslaughter while under the influence and a DUI.
