If my boyfriend wrecked my car, will my insurance pay for it?

My boyfriend collided with another car in an intersection and it damaged my car pretty badly. Will my insurance pay for it, or will his?

“If your boyfriend was driving a car registered in your name, your collision insurance (if you have it), should pay for damages to your car and your liability insurance will pay for the damages to the other vehicle if your boyfriend was at-fault.
If your boyfriend has non-owner car insurance, that could help cover the costs if your insurance is not enough. Expect your premiums to rise even if you weren’t the driver.”
