I am sure the occupants will get a damage payment with a clause for not talking about it and that will be that.
Actually, I agree with your statement above and there would be no point in prosecuting him at his age.

But, sorry about this, it's far from unrealistic to suggest, that, as was the case with your grandfather, and also my late father, albeit he was in his early 80's, he should have stopped driving on public roads some considerable time ago.
