Who is liable for damages caused by a minor in a car accident?

If a minor is driving a car and is at fault in a car accident, the South Carolina Family Purpose Doctrine states that the head of the family who owns and maintains the car for the everyday use of his family is responsible for the negligence of someone within the family when they drive the car.
