I take it you got a crime number John? If not then the collar number of the officer you dealt with.
I'm pretty sure the police would help you with this because they can't abide idiots either.
On top of that, did you check your insurance to see if it covers you for 'uninsured loss' this is sometimes an optional extra but some comprehensive policies include it as standard so as to help the insurance company themselves recover their loses usually by legal means.
A guy once t-boned into me on a roundabout but weirdly claimed it was 100% my fault. My insurance company threatened to take him and his insurers to court at no cost to me due to the uninsured loss section of the policy - His insurers backed down a week before it got to court after they saw the very detailed accident report put together by a retired traffic cop working for my insurers.
This happened about 15 years ago so things may have changed.
I fully understand the hell you'll be going thru over this at the moment (I hardly slept for 6 months!) but keep the faith and self-belief - you will win.
