    The toxicology results of a Coral Gables teen charged in a crash that killed an elderly were released Wednesday.

    The report showed that 19-year-old Ivanna Villanueva's blood alcohol level was .231. Florida's legal limit is .08.

    Villanueva posted $50,000 bond and was released a day after she appeared in court on vehicular manslaughter charges.

    Police say Villanueva was driving recklessly and possibly intoxicated when she struck 68-year-old Eyder Ayala's Ford with her Audi in the southbound lanes of LeJeune Road near Majorca Avenue just after 4:30 a.m.

    Ayala was killed at the scene. Villanueva wasn't injured, police said.

    Previously, Ayala's family had said they were heartbroken.

    "Eight days ago we were at my brother's wedding and my mother was dancing," said Ayala's daughter Brenda Sadeek.  "Now we have to go to a funeral and mourn her death."

    The name of Villanueva's attorney wasn't immediately known.

    But a spokesman for the Villanueva family had said they were "exceedingly saddened" by the incident.
    "Ivanna Villanueva is grief stricken over the tragic accident," family spokesperson Ivan Morales had said. "Everyone in the family wishes to convey their deepest sympathies to the Ayala family at this very, very sad time."
