You say that passengers were "making statements" but don't say to who. If they were making statements to law enforcement it is possible that you could be criminally charged although there would be major proof problems given that it's a couple weeks past the incident. Another issue is whether this incident was reported to insurance as an accident or whether law enforcement ever went to the scene of the accident. Your best bet is to hire an attorney to make sure that charges are not filed, an attorney can usually be retained at reduced rate to represent you before charges are filed (to help ensure that charges are not filed). You are advised not to speak about this incident to anyone except an attorney. Don't talk to the passenger (or anyone else) about this incident. Best of luck.
Not very likely from the limited facts you posted.
