Technically you were in violation of the law when you were driving without insurance. In my jurisdiction it would be very unusual for the police to follow up on such a small matter. Generally if they do arrest or cite you, the matter can be resolved by obtaining insurance. It is also possible that you will suffer civil penalties that can result in your drivers license being suspended if you do not pay for damages caused in the accident.
