  1. She will be facing criminal charges. You cant drive under the age of 16 in nd even if you are liscenced in another state. There are stipulations as well for permit drivers, including having to have a front seat passenger thats 21+ thats sober with a liscence, no other passengers in vehicle, no minor passengers, vehicle must be owned by a direct family member, cannot operate vehicle after sundown….. if the family of the boy that got hurt wanted to, it would be open and shut case for the medical bills + some. So she either took a car she wasnt allowed to or the parents are negligent. NDDOT book is downloadable online and lists everything i just said.
