    I’m sure the car thief/mugger was not insured to drive the car, surely that is more important than whether the driver may/may not of been insured, he is the victim here. It’s a shame that a young man trying to earn some money should have to experience this, hope you manage to get s new vehicle or recover you’re old one and are not put off by this.
