Yellow jacket infestations are hitting Sacramento County early this year, prompting vector specialists to eradicate the sometime aggressive insects whose sting can cause a life-threatening allergic response in some people.
18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez was shooting live video with her cell phone while driving near Merced, California. She was rolling when the car went off the road and flipped, killing her teenage sister. She kept shooting video after her sister died. The California Highway Patrol has not confirmed the validity of the video, but Sanchez's family confirmed to a local TV station. Sanchez faces charges of DUI and vehicular manslaughter.
