Business damaged to undocumented people

Jared Fordham a car mechanic in West Valley City, Utah is struggling to keep his business running after the building he works out of was hit by an undocumented motorist in a truck..   The damage to his building has cost him 50 percent of his business as he is now only able to use half the building.  The status of the building is in the air as inspectors won't allow him to use the bay that was hit...    As a small business owner myself I really feel for Jared and this predicament...  The uninsured motorist attempted to flee the scene and was arrested and possibly awaits extradition.. there's no way Jared would be able to be compensated by the driver.  This type of situation can be crippling to a small business owner.
