(New York Post) Long Island prosecutors took the extraordinary step of holding a mom and dad responsible for their teen son’s high-speed car wreck that killed four of his friends.

Aaditia and Patricia Beer of Queens allowed their son Joseph, 17, to drive their 2012 Subaru on Oct. 8 even though he only had a learner’s permit, prosecutors said.

Joseph was high on marijuana and going more than 110 mph on the Southern State Parkway when he lost control on a section called “Dead Man’s Curve” at around 4 a.m. and skidded into the woods, prosecutors said.
