Woman who livestreamed fatal Los Banos crash arrested again

Stockton police arrested a woman, who was previously convicted of livestreaming a fatal crash, on weapons and traffic charges early Thursday morning.

At around 1:32 a.m., Stockton police said they tried to stop 20-year-old Obdulia Sanchez for a vehicle code violation, but she led officers on a short chase. Eventually, they said she drove the car off a road. Police said a male passenger escaped, but Sanchez was arrested.

Sanchez was released on parole in September after she was convicted of driving drunk while livestreaming the crash that killed her younger sister. She was convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI and child endangerment. She was sentenced to six years and four months, but was released after serving 26 months.

She was 18 at the time of the crash two years ago. The car driven by Sanchez veered onto the shoulder of a road in Los Banos.

Authorities say she overcorrected, causing the vehicle to swerve and overturn, ejecting her 14-year-old sister.

Prosecutors say Sanchez was livestreaming on Instagram while driving, and the video shows her taking her hands off the steering wheel.
