Alcohol results released in teen crash case
MIAMI (WSVN) -- Officials have released toxicology results for the teen involved in a fatal crash that killed an elderly woman.
Toxicology reports were released Tuesday and show 19-year-old Ivanna Villanueva had a blood alcohol content of .231, nearly three times over the legal limit during the accident.
Villanueva faces several charges including vehicular homicide. The state is reviewing those charges, and additional ones may be added due to the results of the report.
According to police, the teen was driving at a high rate of speed when she slammed her car into the back of 68-year-old Eyder Ayala's car along LeJeune Road, near Majorca Avenue, in Coral Gables earlier this month, killing Ayala on the scene.
Brenda Ayala said she will miss her mother dearly. "We're never going to see her again. We're never going to feel her kisses, her hugs," she said.
Ayala's family said they intend on filing a multimillion-dollar wrongful death lawsuit, not only against Villanueva, but also the nightclubs that allegedly provided the minor with alcohol. "Preliminarily, what we know is that she's coming from South Beach, she had been drinking heavily that night. It's 4:30 in the morning, and she rear-ends my client on LeJeune Road and kills her instantly on the scene," said family attorney Carlos Silva.
The Villanueva family has released a statement that read: "Everyone in the family wishes to convey their deepest sympathy to the Ayala family."
Villanueva is currently on house arrest.
