Someone else got into an accident in my car. What now?

My girlfriend hit a car while driving my truck. I let the insurance lapse not too long ago. We switched cars not too long ago but haven't made it "official" so I still own mine and she still owns hers. My truck is fine but his car was pretty banged up. He's calling her tonight for insurance info, since he was in a hurry to get to work at the time. What now? We're in Ohio.

She's thinking of lying and saying she was driving her car and giving them her insurance info. If this doesn't work, what are the consequences for us? Will I get in trouble for letting someone drive my truck that wasn't on the "authorized drivers" list? Am I legally responsible even though someone else was driving the vehicle and I wasn't there? What are the potential consequences for my girl?
