He pleaded guilty and was originally suppose to serve 15 years but it says all 15 but 4 years suspended and the judge gave him 288 days credited and it says upon release he’ll have a supervised probation for a period of 5 years. Is he serving 4 more years or just 1 ?

Sure it's legal. If contraband and cash are found in a car, it's not unusual, and perfectly legal, to charge the occupants. It sound like he has a potentially winable constructive possession case. He should hire an experienced criminal attorney.
Both drivers were found at fault because there were no witnesses. I was seriously injured; driving straight through an intersection, the other driver was turning left. He was uninjured. I never saw him.
Your narrative recites there were no witnesses. Posting signs does not seem like an effective way to locate any. Having said that, you should really have an experienced personal injury attorney examine the liability determination you've been given by the police or by a claims adjuster.
