A friend of mine in high school did this too, let some guy borrow his car, car was totaled and the driver ran away. Was a total loss for him. Your best bet is to say it was stolen. Insurance would cover it then. Your friend will either get probation or a little time in juvi.

Yeah, I think you're pretty much screwed on this one.  Be thankful he didn't kill anyone, otherwise you'd have a lot more to think about than money issues.

It sounds to me like he's going to be liable for some serious charges (driving w/out license/insurance, reckless endangerment, hit & run...) but I'll bet you're responsible for paying for stuff.  Unless of course, you take him to court.   Anyway, I'd suggest going to Craigslist - a community messageboard -- go to the "legal forum" and asking your question in there.  Usually get pretty good advice from Craigslist.
