Unhappy P in my rental is not working!!

guys I was driving today like at 40 and my little sister was playing with a little ball and she trow it and when to get it in the front seat I start screaming "Efi what are you doing" and she hit the gear box with her foot and put the car in P going at 40 so I got scare and pull to the side of the road and I told her to don't do that anymore and NEVER remove the seat belt when she is on the car. :mad:

so OK I drove home and when I pull the car in the driveway and put it in P the car continue moving just if I had put it in N, now I'm using the handbrake to keep the car from rolling away. I got the extra insurance when I got the rental, but I'm not sure if that is cover what should I tell them? should I tell them about the problem at all or just drop the car and that's it.

Just return it to the rental people, mention its a mechanical fault and not your responsibilty..... Normally a rental driver is responsible for visible collision damage... etc
