Robert Joseph Fortier says
right? I guess some people just don’t value life…
Was he trying to stop the kid from stealing it? Was this an idea of fun? Either way, Darwin Award.
Carjacking was the first thing I wondered about too
He was teaching him how to drive a car

It’s Sylvia’s fault…..

This is the kind of result you get when a 51 year old acts like a 14 year old child and the 14 year old thinks he is an adult.
The Darwin theory!
Chris Brown says
When will the kid be charged with car theft and vehicular homicide?
What makes you think that the car was stolen? Fast thinking, bro. I actually know the people.
