A 14-year-old California girl, who survived a deadly car crash last week, refused to blame the driver who was allegedly drunk and livestreaming the tragic joyride.
“Honestly, I’m not mad at anybody and I don’t blame anybody,” Manuela Seja told KSEE-TV in Fresno in an interview that aired late Monday night.
Seja was in the backseat of a car driven by 18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez, who was livestreaming their journey on Instagram when she lost control and crashed in Los Banos on Friday evening, officials said.
Seja’s backseat neighbor Jacqueline Sanchez, also 14, was thrown from the car and killed. Sanchez has been booked into jail on suspicion of DUI and vehicular manslaughter
“She (Jacqueline) was brave, and she was smart, and honestly, I did see her successful in the future,” Seja said.
The victim was set to celebrate Quinceañera on Sunday.
