(Newser) – The teen driver in a Memorial Day car accident called the "worst solo crash in recent memory" didn't have a valid driver's license, and he was cited last month for violating his provisional one, the Los Angeles Times reports. Abdulrahman Alyahyan, 17, received a citation for illegally altering his 2008 Infiniti's exhaust system as well as using tinted windows, limiting his view. Alyahyan's application for a license was pending. He and four others were said to be en route to the beach when the crash occurred. Classes began again yesterday at the high school attended by four of the victims; students set up a memorial with flowers and other items on campus.

What the he... There should be laws about driving without a license. Oh wait, there is. Why the heck would his parents allow him to have a nice car and then DRIVE without a license even AFTER he has been stopped by the police before? STUPID PARENTS!!

he gets a citation on a permit??? if that were my kid, he wouldn't have been behind the wheel again until he turned 18. the parents are as much responsible as he is, especially for allowing him to have other kids in the car when he doesn't even have a license. what a horrible thing they ALL have on their conscience.... and if that picture is his mug shot..... he's SMILING??????
