I hope you explained to the officer that you were going to straight. Also I hope they don't have insurance they deserve to pay for this.
If the guy doesn't have insurance, there is a decent chance that he couldn't afford to pay for damages on his own. Laws on whose insurance pays vary, but even in "no fault" states (where each party's insurance pays for their damages, irrespective of who was at fault), I fail to see how him being uninsured would benefit OP.
It might just be where I'm from. If people don't decide to contact their insurance companies or something they usual get personal and make a payment plan, usually the "victim" will contact their insurance and say it was a deer or something and have their own insurance cover the damages while in this case OP and the person who T-Boned them do this whole payment thing for whatever else.
Let him explain that to the judge and see how it works out for him.
At least the guy who hit you stayed at the scene of the accident. Also, he'll most likely be paying for your car repairs! So in actuality, FHL. :p
