Help me get over a car accident

My wife got into a car accident last week. I wasn't with her, The story is, someone cut her off and slammed on the breaks and she had to turn to avoid him, she over turned and someone else almost hit her so she turned again and the car started rolling. it was an SUV and that made the flipping so easy. She is unharmed, she did not hit anyone, but the car is totalled.
The blue book value of the car is about $7,000, we are in mountain view, california. According to the insurance, since they can't find the person who caused the accident, they will not pay a penny. That means, a total loss of the car and outrages fees for the car lot keeping the car!!!
What do I do? She said something about a police report, but she was told by the insurance company that she won't have access for another 2 weeks. This is our only car, and this ia major loss, if it is going to happen like that, I am totally lost.
The insurance company is farmers, not that it matters I guess.
Can I sell the car? to at least take it out of the lot and stop causing more charges, (about $40 a day)
Who buys cars like that?
Does the insurance company right with what they offered,or lack of it?
