Can I drive a car in the US on my UK insurance?

I'm going to the U.S. for a couple of weeks and a relative has said I can use their car while I'm there. How do I make sure I'm fully insured while using it? Can I drive on their insurance or will my own comprehensive insurance on my U.K. car cover me?
