How does a 16 year old get access to a vehicle? Sad. I question where the adults were in this story.

Uh, sorry to point this out, but 16 year olds are not legally allowed to drive. So the word “tragic” makes no sense here.

$1,000 question – what was a 16 year old doing driving a car? He probably only had a permit and thought a car was a toy and was speeding.

Indeed. Young teens almost always overestimate their ability to control a vehicle. I know I did when I was that age, nearly causing accidents many times until I learned I’m not as capable as I thought myself to be and became a lot more cautious with time. I was lucky. Feel sorry for this poor kid.
