The driver entered the wrong side of the fwy....Possibly drunk! It was a head on collision. The bottom front bumper, side fender, front grill, & radiator got messed up. When I turn it on it makes a weird sound. My truck has been (stopped) out of work time for 3 days now(losing money). My insurance will send someone to inspect the truck until Monday. According to my insurance carrier, I don't have downtime coverage, could I ask for the other driver insurance to pay me for downtime?
You should contact a car Accident Lawyer as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation for not only your property damage but also for loss of use of car or rental expenses, compensation for personal Injury, loss of wages, etc. Most Accident lawyers will provide you with a free consultation.

Yes. Sounds like there were no injuries. You could either hire an attorney or sue in small claims court for your downtime.
