Q: If i wreck into someone while uninsured and they sell the car while im paying back the damages do I have to pay them?

Hi, I recently wrecked into someone while uninsured and now as indicated by the inspection sheet from a local mechanic shop provided by the other driver, I owe her 4000 dollars. Ive been paying her 200 dollars a month, and have payed up 1200 of it so far in the last 4 months (tax return really helped I guess) I recently found out yesterday that not only was she able to buy a new car she was also selling the one I wrecked into for 2000 dollars. I was wondering that if she sells the car that I wrecked into while uninsured, if i still needed to pay off the damages (3800 dollars) if she signs the title to that car to a new owner.

Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

A: I'm assuming they got some type of judgement or agreement, and so she can do as she pleases.
