Car accident, his fault, going through insurance, no idea.

I just got into a low-speed car accident in a parking lot. The kid who hit me jumped out and said "sorry, sorry, totally my fault, I wasn't paying attention." I got all his insurance info and his driver's license. Now what?

I've never actually "gone through insurance" for any sort of car-related mishap. We just bought this (used, but "certified pre-owned" yadda yadda) car in December, and I'm pretty pissed.
Funny thing is, I have no idea what to do next. I took his info, I gave him nothing. Do I need a police report, or do I just go to my dealer and get an estimate? Do I notify my insurance company and give them his information, or do I just call his insurance company?
This is in NJ.
