Can my mom say that I stole her car if she gave me permission to use?

Question Details: I'm an unlicensed driver. Recently, I was put in a situation in which my boyfriend, an unlicensed driver also, had to drive to pick up my roommate. She told him that I said she could drive even though I didn't. This is how my mom's car got involved in a hit and run and impounded. Can she say that we stole her car even though she gave me permission to use said car?
