Dumb upon dumb

I can certainly understand why this jagoff preferred to remain anonymous:

So my friend who is under 18 he is 16 actually well his dad let him take one of the cars from his house and let one of his friends drive because that person is recently licensed but he is not so he had two people in the car on top on my friend and the driver. My friend let his other friend drive who only has a permit they tried to drift the car and crashed it into the curb and I think a tree and the driver left the scene immediately after getting out of the car. What will the consequences be for my friend and more importantly for the driver who left the scene and was not licensed only had a permit? Thanks for any answers and please no rude or disrespectful comments/answers please just keep your opinion to yourself and provide answers only on the basis of the law. Thanks

The phrase that pays here is “they tried to drift the car.” As Judge Radar down the street has been known to say, “INSTANT GUILTY!”

And how many of you suspect that the “friend” is purely a phantom?

    1. Ow, that first sentence hurts my brain. Take a breath, dude, or whatever the punctuation equivalent of one is.

    2. This sounds vaguely like a bit from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” except it was the friend taking the friend’s dad’s car, and the death of the car was it running off the blocks when they were trying to roll back the odometer….and there was no drifting in Ferris Bueller that I remember.

    What’s drifting?

    This paragraph from Wikipedia is actually pretty specific:

    Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, with loss of traction in the rear wheels or all tires, while maintaining control and driving the car through the entirety of a corner. Car drifting is caused when the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle, to such an extent that often the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right or vice versa, also known as opposite lock or counter-steering).
