Legal Question in Personal Injury in Texas

Son is being charged with "Texas Transportation Code - Section 550.021. Accident Involving Personal Injury Or Death" a felony. Issue involving someone holding on to the car while it was in motion. I gave him the car but it was still in my name at the time. If he is found guilty of this crime, does that mean that he is at fault for the accident itself?
