Sorry to hear the news mate, hope the cost isn't too much to repair her and that she goes back to A1 condition. I feel for your anger as in the end even though that guy clearly ran into you there's cops to access the situation and if the damage in under $500. Did you get any witness's, thats usually a start to nail the person down for the costs.
Yeah unfortunately people driving around uninsured is all too common. Really annoys me people who drive around uninsured. I always feel if you someone drives around uninsured and claims they can't afford insurance then they should not drive a car. By meaning of insurance i mean 3rd party property at the least.
Last year in my EF i got hit on the drivers door and guard by an idiot in an excel he did a runner and i can almost bet he was un insured i had to fork out $700 out of my pocket and the hassle of not having a car and sorting quotes.
Let me know how things go.
