    89 years old AND with dementia. Yet he’s allowed access to a vehicle. Sorry, but his family and/or caretakers bear some of the responsibility here. Why is he allowed anywhere near a vehicle? Yes I know a motivated person could jump in a vehicle and take off. So can teenagers. For argument’s sake, let’s say it was a neighbor’s vehicle. And he found the keys in the car. Even more reason to keep your cars locked.
