COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say alcohol poisoning killed a teenage girl whose body was found in a car at a western Iowa shopping center.

The Daily Nonpareil says (https://bit.ly/1cEHwcA ) the death of 15-year-old Mireya Mata-Alvarez was ruled an accident.

The Council Bluffs Police Department says Mata-Alvarez had been out with two girls and five boys most of the night of Dec. 20-21. One of the girls called paramedics a little after 10 a.m. on Dec. 21, but police say Mata-Alvarez had already died.

An autopsy and toxicology tests showed her blood alcohol level was five times the legal limit.
