The woman behind a viral video that was live-streamed last year showing a young girl ejected from a car crash with a grievous injury to her face and head will now spend at least six years in prison.
19-year-old driver Obdulia Sanchez of California was sentenced Thursday after being convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI and child endangerment as a result of a July 2017 crash that she also live-streamed.
Sanchez drove her car onto the shoulder of a road in Los Banos which is around 100 miles south of San Francisco. When she over-corrected, the vehicle swerved and overturned ejecting and killing her 14-year-old sister.
Contributing to the crash was the fact she was live-streaming to Instagram, according to prosecutors. After the crash occurred, she got out and filmed her sister's body holding the camera so they were both in the frame.

Sanchez said, "My sister f**king is dying, look" as she looks into the camera and shakes her sister's badly damaged body.
