    Why was he driving at 9:45PM? Insane! I agree with fanzelive, if you hold the parents responsible, this would stop happening.

    I am seeing more and more of these situations where the teen was driving and not supposed to be under the new driver license rules. I think it is time to start holding the parents accountable for letting their kids drive illegally. Matbe if the parents would stop buying thier kid a new car at the age of fifteeen these types of accidents would go down.
