Come on now, your point is ridiculous.

The tech was (allegedly) test driving the car for a valid reason. While we do not know with certainty how fast he was driving or if he did anything that would have caused the accident, he did have a valid reason to be test driving the car at the time of the accident.

If you walk into the showroom with a sledge hammer, it is clearly for malicious reasons. Why on earth would anyone walk into a showroom carrying a sledge hammer? Do you think it is remotely close to a technician doing his job by test driving the car?
