Yes, you can. Before reporting it stolen I suggest you record (with her permission and knowledge of recording) that you want car otherwise it will be reported stolen. If she refuses to give you the car then you can report it stolen. I would check with local police or county police as some will not care and do nothing but get your car back without arresting spouse. It depends upon the state you reside in and the circumstances under which the vehicle came into her possession. Simply because the vehicle is in one spouse's name does not translate into the other spouse being liable for grand theft auto or any criminal act.

Can you report your car stolen by your wife if its in your name only if the insurance is in her name?

It doesn't matter whose name the car is under (or the insurance). If you are legally married, in the eyes of the law, neither of you have your own possessions...they are joint possessions. If you called the cops because your wife drove off in "your" car, they tell you it is a civil matter, not one for law enforcement. I have been through this :( Once you go to a lawyer and draw up papers regarding whose is what, and file a separation, then you can show those to the police and they can enforce it...but as long as you are legally married, you are SOL.

Can a wife report a car stolen if the husband loaned it to his child but is hospitalized and not able to speak?

No, as long as the child can prove the parent was able to, and did, loan the car. The wife would be lying to cause the false prosecution of the child to whom the car was loaned and she would have filed a false police report. However, unless the permission is in writing the child should stop using the car until the parent is able to confirm that permission was given and continued use is permitted.Another View: On the other hand, a spouse CAN file a report for the theft of marital property, if they knew or believed it to actually be stolen.However, if they knew at the time they made the report that the vehicle was in the possession of the child, yet maliciously filed the report anyway, they could be liable for prosecution for filing a False Police Report.
