I would just let your insurance company handle it. If you got the contact information for the witnesses, give that to the insurance company as well. Good luck and I hope everything gets resolved for you soon.

I agree. You should give you insurance company all the information possible and make a claim under thier insurance coverage if they have insurance. Contact an attorney if you can't find anything.
Gather all information and turn it over to your insurance company and the police. Let each of them handle this. That's why you pay premiums and taxes.

Don't deal directly with him. It sounds like he either was drunk, or otherwise out of control. Simply report it to your insurance company, give your company the witness' names if you have them, and let the company fix your car and chase the other driver.
If you contacted your insurance company and the police, I think the only thing you can really do now is cooperate and make sure both the insurance company and the police have all the facts surrounding the incident. Luckily, it seems as though no one was injured.
