  1. Where did the kids find the keys to open the vehicles and then start it? If the keys were in the vehicle, then the adults responsible for this must be charged as an accessory and negligence. Was the engine running or turned off? All these questions will asked in a court of law. Make it a habit to turn off the engine and lock it even if away for a very short time. Hope and pray that the young victims will be okay!
