If there was a deadly car accident you might have or need a personal injury attorney. Have them call the police station to figure it out. You should also contact your insurance company to let them know about the accident.

If the car is a leased vehicle, then you must have coverage in place. or your leasing company will purchase coverage for you. I would suggest you call your insurance agent and leasing company , and tell them that you currently do not have possession of your car, although I doubt that will make a difference.
Make sure you do not discuss the details of the accident with anyone.
I believe you should continue your lease payment until it gets straightened out. You need to talk to the leasing company. If the car is totaled, your insurance company may pay the rest of the lease value minus salvage. I am sure this is not the first time this has happened. The police may tie the vehicle up for quite some time. You need to all the players involved.
Regardless of who is at fault for the accident your obligation for the lease is based on a contract you entered into with the lease company. Your obligation will likely continue depending on the language in your contract.
