QAre the parents to blame?

There was a bad accident that killed a 14 year old cheerleader over the weekend in Saint Petersburg Florida. The driver was a 15 year old that only had a permit which states he must have a legal licensed driver in the passengers seat and his mother allowed him to drive alone knowing the law. He crashed and killed another child in the vehicle with him. Should his mother who is an adult and knows better be held accountable?

If she knew and allowed him to drive she probably will be held accountable. What about the 14 yr olds parents did they know she was riding with a non licensed driver? If they did and they allowed her to ride with the 15 yr old anyway then both sets of parents are responsible. However both of the teens knew better also. Whose fault was the accident?
It is very sad. My prayers go out to all involved.

The kid was fifteen and mom let him drive knowing the law. If she isn't responsible, what's the point of the law?
