If he has the meteorite or a piece of it in his damaged car, car insurance payment of the damage notwithstanding, he's in for a serious chunk of change. Meteorites that have been documented to have impacted something (other than earth or water) are disproportionately expensive.
Also, does the damage look more terrestrial than one would suspect with a piece of high velocity stone or metal? Almost say like someone bumped a fire hydrant or something similar while executing a three point turn. I'd have suspected more of a localized but massive type damage than "indented bumper" type damage.
