Teen Killed In Livestreamed Crash Is Identified

(AP) - Authorities have released the name of a California girl killed in a crash that occurred as her older sister was livestreaming while driving the car.

Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke identified the girl Monday as 14-year-old Jacqueline Sanchez of Stockton.

Authorities say she was ejected Friday from the car that flipped over after veering off a San Joaquin Valley road.

Her 18-year-old sister Obdulia Sanchez was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and vehicular manslaughter.

A recording of the livestream shows the driver shaking the girl after the crash and saying she was sorry.

Merced County prosecutor Rob Carroll says video of the livestream will be a key piece of evidence.

Neither Sanchez nor an attorney representing her could be reached for comment.
