(CA) Driver who hit me is uninsured and I've begun the claims process with my ins. co. Should I give uninsured driver a head's up?

This is a fairly straightforward question and I wanted to get a flavor of what the proper protocol is. I was rear-ended on the freeway by an uninsured driver (not sure if the vehicle has insurance, it may not have been his car), got the plates, exchanged numbers. He left me a message the next day informing me that he didn't have insurance and wanted to know where things stand, as his lack of insurance may complicate things.
I have started the claims process, but have yet to respond to the driver. Should I give a call back or just let the insurance company handle it from this point on?
