    He might have left it in drive. I've never owned an auto but I'm pretty sure when I forget to take my gf's car out of drive I can't remove the key or restart until I put it in park.

    I vote for this. Saw a kid do it at a meet, he was panicked that his ignition broke, til I told him to put it in park.
