What is my liability when I sell my car and it is totalled the same evening?

I sold my car to my boss...we made up a contract, signed it, he gave me a deposit check and I gave him the keys. I removed my insurance from the vehicle before he took possession....it was at 7:00 pm on a friday night...he did not have insurance put on it prior to the transaction,. Later that evening, he was in a horrible storm and totalled the car....now he has stopped payment on his deposit check and the vehicle is not insured and a complete wreck....is he liable to pay for a wrecked vehicle? Am I out a car and the $$$? I have been to my insurance company and they told me to go to the police...the police say it's a civil matter...please help ...I'm very upset. Thanks, Vicki
