What to do on the periphery of an automobile collision?

Yesterday I was involved in the first automobile collision I have ever been involved in, and am unsure what the best way to proceed is. The pickup truck behind me was rear-ended on the interstate, resulting in it being pushed into my own vehicle. My car is practically undamaged, and I don't think I want to go through the process of filing a claim. Is this a bad idea? More details inside. [more inside]

Obviously, the driver-at-fault's insurance should pay for the repairs. But do we contact my insurance company, my parent's insurance company, or only the other driver's insurance company?

Meteorite on a collision course with earth-- how to NOT see it coming?

What are some reasonably-realistic scientific scenarios in which, assuming all the current technology we have at the moment was in working order, scientists might miss seeing a potentially catastrophic meteorite on a collision course with Earth until it was actually entering the atmosphere? I assume that astrophysicists see potentially threatening asteroids/meteors coming months, if not years, in advance. But could there be a circumstance in which that might not be the case? Thanks!
