Legal Question in Traffic Law in Texas

I recently caused damage to a commercial building in Texas with my vehicle. I was looking down and didn't realize my vehicle was still in drive. I panicked and left. Two days later I called the company and tried to right my wrong. I filed an insurance claim to fix their building. I also found out that they had filed a police report on me. What legal implications are there since I tried to right my wrong?
