Id imagine he would at least be held responsible for the cost to repair the car. The other concern(s) I would have are of the legal repercussions for 1 driving an uninsured car and 2 fleeing the scene of a crime. The fines most likely vary by state- perhaps more details?

And the obvious question… did he actually do it?

What state did this occur in? Laws very from state to state. It certainly won’t help that there are two offenses. Were these both his first offenses? I think in most states, driving without insurance will or can incur a fine and leaving the scene of an accident is a misdemeanor, a criminal offense. It’s hard to say what will happen to him. Leaving the scene of an accident with property damage as opposed to an injury accident isn’t quite as serious.

”...what can he do?”

He can ManUp and take responsibility for his actions.

A little bird once told me that long term happiness is found when we do the right thing, even if it hurts us. It may seem difficult at first, and it probably is. But the personal growth and maturity needed to address life’s future issues is gained by doing the right thing… That means, treat others how you would like to be treated. That also means taking responsibility for doing the wrong thing, like driving without insurance.
