Good Day

I happened to drive my brother's car on a public road recently without a driver's licence. When I entered in the main road from the gravel road I bumped into another cars drivers door panel. The driver was on high speed because when I enetered into the road there was no car. So the police came and gave me a ticket for driving without a licence and also made an accident report. The person I bumped into was not willing to negotiate or hear if I can take care of the damages of the car. She just left without a word or even exchange of contact details. The car I was driving has no insurance and at the scene there is no one who got injured in anyway. So I want to know what steps should I follow in case the individual takes the matter to her lawyer or open a case??
