Car Insurance Question: Hit and Run

My husband's car were totaled in a hit-and-run this past Saturday. The car was parked on the street, and a drunk driver plowed into it in the middle of the night.

The police located the car, it had been abandoned a block away, and they found insurance documentation from Geico in the glovebox that they passed on to my husband. It now, however, appears that there is a question as to whether that paperwork actually belonged to the car in question, and Geico is dragging its feet in looking up that information and giving it out. So, at this point, we don't know whether the car is insured, or by whom.
This is causing a headache regarding my husband's insurance, which is going to put it under his collision insurance, rather than his non-insured driver's insurance (or having Geico pay the claim), and the collision insurance has a $1000 deductible, which for obvious reasons he does not want to have to pay.
Is there a way to put pressure on Geico to release that information sooner rather than later? Or is there a way that we could look up that information ourselves?
