Someone smashed into our van, which was parked outside our house, and did not leave a note with insurance info. What recourse do we have?

Our older-model van, which was parked on the street in front of our house, was smashed into by someone who drove off without leaving a note. The road was mostly clear, with just a few patches of ice. The driver-side door of our van was badly damaged, in a manner that looks as if the other driver backed into it.
Since it is an older vehicle, we carry only collision insurance on it. What are our options? What recourse do we have? Has anyone else had a similar situation?
Thanks in advance!
