They’re trying to get you to say something that would show you were partly or entirely responsible for the accident.
They probably won’t ask you to admit fault straight out. But they’ll probe for any inconsistencies between what you say happened, what their driver says happened, and what the police say happened.
If the case goes to a jury (which is unlikely but possible), the other side’s attorney can use these inconsistencies to cast doubt on whether the insurance company’s client was really 100% at fault for the car accident.
That’s why you shouldn’t talk to them about the car accident, and you certainly shouldn’t allow them to record a call with you.
