Help paying an unexpected cost

Monday night, 11/9/2020, on my way home from work, and with one of my sons in tow, an uninsured driver attempted to make an illegal turn in front of my vehicle. We collided, causing major damage to my vehicle.

The other driver had no car insurance, no driver’s license, and she even attempted to lie to the police about how the accident occurred. She was cited and named driver at fault, but I am left to deal with the consequences of her negligence and irresponsibility - this means paying my insurance deductible, which I am unprepared for. 

While I am grateful to be back at work now, I had been utilizing my savings to help me stay afloat during a period of unemployment due to COVID-19. Now that I am experiencing this unfortunate ordeal, I do not have enough in my savings to cover my deductible.

I know this is a hard time for everyone, and my problems are miniscule compared to some of others, but I would really be so thankful for any help I can get. Thank you!
