The defense attorney for a teenage driver accused of driving drunk while livestreaming the crash that killed her younger sister says a mechanical problem may have caused the accident in California.
The Merced Sun-Star reported Obdulia Sanchez’s lawyer told a judge Friday that he has reason to believe the crash was caused by wear and tear on a tire, causing it to blow out.
Sanchez was driving a car that veered onto the shoulder of the road on July 21. Authorities said she overcorrected, causing the vehicle to swerve and overturn, ejecting and killing her 14-year-old sister.
Sanchez has pleaded not guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving.
