What are my options? Very minor accident; only took my registration info and phone number. Should I call him?

This happened in Colorado. Bad snow storm; city was on accident alert. I slid on the ice and the front bumper of my car hit his rear driver side rim. then left minor black scuff marks, about 3 to 4 inches on rear driver side door and driver side door. Looks to appear to have no dents only the black scuff marks. I have no car insurance and the only info he took from me was the registration info and my phone number, not even a name or driver license, no witness either. I only took his name and number.

Does Colorado require you have to car insurance?  If you don't and get into a car accident such as you did, do you happen to know if this would be considered a point on your driving record?  How long ago did this happen?  What did the other driver say to you right after the accident.?  What did you say?  Try also reviewing http://www.michie.com/colorado/lpext.dll?f=templates&fn=main-h.htm&cp=
