The California Highway Patrol said Sanchez was driving north of Los Banos when she swerved off the road and over-corrected her turn. She then veered across lanes and crashed into a wire fence, and her car rolled into a field. Her 14-year-old sister was ejected from the vehicle.

A second girl, also 14, was hospitalized after she suffered major trauma to her right leg.
