Pokemon Bro Wrecked my Car

Hi world.  You've probably seen some news stories by now about a 28 year old man who crashed into a tree playing pokemon go.  I'm his brother.  He was driving my car. 
     I saved up my earnings from my first job in high school to buy that car.  I spent a year fixing it and investing more money in it to make it roadworthy.  Then my brother wrapped it around a tree in hot pursuit of a pokemon.  I didn't even know he was driving my car that night until I heard about the crash.  The scrap metal formerly known as car had no collision coverage.  Incredibly, my brother is alive and well, and I do dearly hope he will learn some harsh lessons about road safety.
   I work two jobs cooking and washing dishes at restaurants to pay my rent.  I am 20 years old and I needed to sell that car to start building savings and have an emergency fund ready.  Now, obviously, the car has to be written off.  I won't bullshit you.  I'm not gonna starve or anything, but this throws off all of my planning for the future on account of a stupid mistake someone else made.
    If you help out, you're saving my ass.  Life is insane and unpredictable and everyone is one chaotic moment away from needing some help.  I can't promise anything except to be a responsible-ass adult and pay the kindness forward when I'm doing well for myself.
