A friends' 14 yr old grandson was operating my UTV and wrecked it causing $2600 in damage. His mother was present at the time. Would the parent be liable for the damage caused by her son?

The parent might be responsible for your damages, and you might be liable for any injuries he suffered. The facts determine liability. You probably can't provide enough facts here, to determine likely liability. Therefore, you should consult directly with a civil practice attorney in your area.
Possibly, if he was negligent
The parent can be held liable up to the statutory limit. Consult with an attorney!
