The 14-year-old survivor from a deadly live-streamed video of a car crash Friday afternoon says she doesn’t blame the accident on the 18-year-old driver who was allegedly under the influence. Instead, the young California girl claimed that her girlfriend’s death is “social media’s” fault as it now consumes peoples’ lives.

In an interview with KSEE, 14-year-old Manuela Seja said: “Honestly, I’m not mad at anybody and I don’t blame anybody,” Seja’s girlfriend was killed in the accident which occurred when the victim’s sister wrecked her car while live streaming a video. Seja said, “It’s all affected by social media. That’s what life is now. And it’s going to advance more and more. That what it’s going to be about.”
The driver of the vehicle, Obdulia Sanchez, was reportedly under the influence at the time of the accident which resulted in the death of Obdulia’s sister Jacqueline, who was ejected from the vehicle. Investigators believe Obdulia overcompensated as she was veering off the road which resulted in the vehicle flipping.
The whole incident was captured on Instagram’s live streaming service. Even after Obdulia found Jacqueline body in a nearby field covered in blood, she still recorded the incident.
“Jacqueline, please wake up. I f****** killed my sister, OK? I know I’m going to jail for life. I love my sister… this is the last thing I thought was going to happen to us,” she said.
Towards the end of the video, the 18-year-old tells her deceased sister, “Wake up baby, I’m f**king sorry baby, I did not mean to kill you sweetie.”
Those close to the Sanchez family have told news outlets that Obdulia has been having a difficult time with the incident and says she wishes she had died instead.
The now infamous viral video of the car crash has the local police scouring the internet and checking the authenticity of the clip before using it against Obdulia. Obdulia was arrested at the scene and charged with vehicular manslaughter while under the influence and DUI.
