An 18-year-old teen from Stockton, California, was arrested Friday after allegedly driving under the influence and crashing her auto through a barbed-wire fence and into a field, killing her 14-year-old sister - and documenting the whole thing via an Instagram livestream. It's since been reported neither of the minors were wearing their seatbelts.
It said Obdulia Sanchez had complained chest and leg pain. The video, which was live streamed to Obdulia's Instagram account, shows the moment that the vehicle rolls over a fence and into a nearby field. Her 14-year-old sister Jacqueline Sanchez was reportedly thrown from the auto. I killed my sister ...
Later, she is seen shaking her sister's lifeless body, saying: "I killed my sister, but I don't care".
The clip ends with her kneeling next to her dead sister and saying: "Wake up baby, I'm f*****g sorry baby, I did not mean to kill you sweetie".
Mary Hernandez of Stockton recorded the live stream.
Records show she is being held on a $300,000 (£230,000) bond following Friday's crash. She over-corrected, causing the vehicle to swerve across lanes, crash through a wire fence and overturn into a field causing Jaqueline to die upon impact.

She told the channel: "At first we didn't even want to believe it was real".
Another passenger was in the auto; however, both she and the driver suffered minor injuries.
'I think this video can get a lot of people to think twice about using their phones while driving now'.
The other 14-year-old passenger who was wounded in the wreck can be seen attempting to wave down help. The video has since been deleted from social media sites, but not before being viewed and shared by numerous users. The driver was reportedly combative and agitated during the incident, screaming at officers that her sister was dead, local newspaper The Fresno Bee reported.
Upon her arrest, Obdulia was being held in the county jail on charges of vehicular manslaughter while under the influence.
A GoFundMe page that is purportedly raising money for her funeral costs has been set up and has a $10,000 goal.
