LONGMONT, Colo. - Longmont police are trying to determine how a 16-year-old girl got alcohol after she was hospitalized with a blood-alcohol level five times the legal threshold for being under the influence.
Police Cmdr. Jeff Satur said a limousine driver found her abandoned by her friends in the back of the limo. According to the Longmont Times-Call, the girl was part of "limousine party" for a 14-year-old girl.
Satur said the 16-year-old was taken by ambulance to Longmont United Hospital.
The teen's blood-alcohol level of .40, Satur said. The legal limit for people driving a vehicle is .08.
The drunk teenager's blood alcohol content was so high that she could have died, but she was able to get help in time.
