Obdulia Sanchez Stockton, California woman re- arrested after crashing car during chase, found in possession of loaded weapon after early jail release after killing sister.
A California woman on parole after serving jail time for driving drunk while livestreaming a crash that killed her younger sister was arrested Thursday after crashing a car during a police pursuit, officials said.
Obdulia ‘Lulu’ Sanchez, 20, was booked on weapons and traffic charges and a parole violation, said Officer Joe Silva, a Stockton Police Department spokesman.
In a Facebook post release, Stockton Police described officers attempting to stop Sanchez for a vehicle code violation, only for her not to pull over. She crashed near a highway on-ramp and was arrested. A man traveling with her escaped, Silva said.
‘The arresting officers saw she was on parole and was driving on a revoked driver’s license,’ Silva said sacbee reported.
‘The driver was taken into custody without incident. A search of the vehicle revealed a loaded firearm,’ the Facebook post noted.

‘She got scared. She was driving with a revoked license, that’s why she run.’
Last year, Sanchez was sentenced to six 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.
Prosecutors said Sanchez was livestreaming on Instagram while driving when she crashed. The video showed her taking her hands off the steering wheel.
She was released from prison last month after serving two years and two months.
Following Sanchez’s arrest, the 20 year old’s father told media, ‘She got scared. She was driving with a revoked license, that’s why she run.’
The father said the woman leaved under his roof and was well behaved while conceding he wasn’t necessarily aware what she was doing when she wasn’t home.
State corrections department spokeswoman Terri Hardy said Sanchez received credit for the time she spent in jail before she was sentenced. Her sentence was also reduced under California law for good behavior with credits for various rehabilitation programs.
