A: more info is needed.

you will probably have your license suspended by DMV for a year.

hopefully, the other party has a large policy and they can pursue an uninsured motorist claims against their own policy.

though that ins co would have the right subrogate against you, the chances are if you don't have assets to speak of, that they will not do so.
