My daughter drove a friend's car to test drive it in our subdivision. While driving she hit a parked car. She called the police and the friend was asked at the time whether he wanted to report the car stolen and he replied no. The car was actually owned by his grandparents. They have been paid by their insurance company for the total loss of the car and have cashed the check. They are now trying to sue my daughter for $12000 for "stolen vehicle" Can they do this?
