Legal Question in Personal Injury in California

My son if 15 years old was convinced by his 15 year old friend to take the keys for our car in the middle of the night while everyone is a sleep and they both along with a third 15 year old friend went driving the car recklessly and the friend of my son who was driving the car had an accident that totaled the car and destroyed an electric pole. The police gave the kid (my son's friend who was driving the car) a large violation ticket. but our insurance told us that we take on the liability for the whole accident as our son gave the keys to his friend to drive the car and our son was in the car during the accident. Do we face any legal liability from the parents of my son's friends even though we did not give him permission
