Had a hit and run: I got a rental, can I do Uber?

So a couple days ago I had a hit and run. The guy drove away and I filed a report. Now my insurance gave me a rental car for the time being. Am I able to use this car for Uber? Or is this a big no no?

Don't do it. There has already been high profile case in the news of a rental car (obviously not allowed to use for commercial purposes) getting into an accident in toronto. I am sure that did not end well for the UberX driver, or anyone else:
...police were pursuing a black Acura SUV in a chase that ended in a collision with the UberX car (the rental), sending eight people to hospital.
