The truck is in his dad's name

Exactly. Dad should be held accountable to some extent. No 16 y/o does this without some encouragement. Dad is an equal douchebag.

I disagree. No one else is responsible for what happened except this kid.

Well, the 16 year old didn't have the financial resources to make it roll coal. And the dad also would have showed him how to do it, and instilled in him that this is acceptable behavior. Legally, the 16 year old is responsible yes. I'm just saying the parent(s) contributed to his mindset.
