Teen abandoned with .40 alcohol level after limousine party

LONGMONT, CO - Police in Colorado 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.

Longmont Police Cmdr. Jeff Satur said a limousine driver found her abandoned by her friends in the back of the limo. According to a local news site, the girl was part of "limousine party" for a 14-year-old girl.

Satur says the 16-year-old was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

The teen's blood-alcohol level of .40, Stur 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.
