Obdulia Sanchez Arrested after Police Chase

A California woman who was jailed after live-streaming a fatal DUI crash that killed her younger sister was arrested after a police chase, authorities said.

On Thursday, at around 1:30 a.m., officers attempted to stop 20-year-old Obdulia Sanchez, of Stockton, for a vehicle code violation but she did not stop. The officers initiated a pursuit.

The chase ended shortly after Sanchez was unable to negotiate a turn and crashed off the road near an on-ramp to 5 Freeway. Police arrested her without incident.

A male passenger in her vehicle ran away.

Police searched the vehicle and found a loaded firearm. They also saw Sanchez was on parole and was driving on a revoked driver’s license. Authorities say she will face possible weapons and traffic-related charges.

Sanchez was last year sentenced to 6 years and four months in prison for driving under the influence and gross vehicular manslaughter after her 14-year-old sister died in the 2017 crash.

Sanchez was released on Sept. 21 after serving about 19 months.
