Ohio follows a tort liability insurance system which means that the responsible party’s insurance should pay for your damages.  While the other driver in this case seems to have been at fault, without their insurance information – or cooperation – you should contact your own insurance company and let them know what happened.  They may pay for the damage to your car and attempt to collect those monies from the responsible party.
