I was involved in a vehicular accident. The car has insurance but it doesn't cover me. I have to pay for the damages to the other person vehicle out of pocket, but I don't have the money at the moment.

I was quoted "I was going about 60" however this was 20 mins after the crash and had no time to reflect on what was happening. realistically I was going about 57. And the snow was not removed on the road, therefore Even if i was going 55 my tires wernt touching the road
