(RSMo 1939 § 8467)

(1958) In action by mother for death of decedent in one-car accident charging owner of automobile with wanton, willful and reckless conduct in permitting decedent, just under sixteen years of age, to drive, court held that submissible case had not been made since evidence would not justify finding that the owner knew, or circumstances were so strong as to charge him as reasonable man with anticipating, that serious injury would probably result. Thomasson v. Winsett (A.), 310 S.W.2d 33.

(1958) Person who "knowingly permits" driving by person under the age of sixteen is negligent as a matter of law.  Thomasson v. Winsett (A.), 310 S.W.2d 33.
