The driver of a motor vehicle (and also the owner) can be legally responsible to passengers for the negligence of the person behind the wheel. Driving a motor vehicle is a serious responsibility and should not be taken lightly. Even in a one car accident, the driver/owner may be responsible to the passengers for negligence.
