    The title of that article is extremely misleading. The kid who died does not appear to be the same person who carjacked the woman with the Dodge Charger; he was driving the stolen Chevy Malibu.

    Having said that...boo freakin' hoo. :crying:

    He needed the car to get to his PSAT early. Had some studying to do.

    the narrow way
    Understand 100%... my point was intimating as to what point in time the parent(s) would be liable for their children thugs and thereby would have higher incentive to actually participate in their lives more so than being acting like someone running a B & B and not caring who comes or goes as long as the check comes on time every month.

    Besides, everyone already hates insurance companies, so no one would care too much more if they went after parents of underage felons.

    I'm certainly not gonna lose any sleep over junior perp's premature demise, but as for, "he was just about to turn his life around," well, it does happen. My father's a perfect example. Oldest of 9 kids, and poor like most of us have never experienced, he and another guy started committing armed robberies on mom&pop gas stations when they were 16 years old. Got caught of course. My dad was fortunate to be sent to the "boys' town" jail instead of real jail, but the experience straightened him out somewhat I guess, and my mom took care of the rest. Raised two Eagle scouts.

    Might be the exception, but it does happen.

    They certainly can - that's basic insurance law. It's easiest to sue his estate, but he owns nothing, so they could probably make a case against the parent. However, insurance companies are there for profit, so they don't sue unless there is actually money to be made. There is a 99.99765% chance his mother lives off our tax money.

    Kids mother will sue the owner of the car for giving the kid the keys and sue the cops for chasing him.
