Sorry to hear that. I am all about keeping women off the road, too.

A impossible task...
This guy is walking on the beach somewhere in California. He sees a lamp, rubs it, and a Genie comes out. The genie is so happy that he decides to grant one wish to the lucky guy.
The guy thinks about it and says, "I'd like you to build a highway to Hawaii because I am afraid to fly. The genie responds that this can't be done because it would be technologically impossible considering the depth of the ocean and the distance to Hawaii. So he asks the guy to wish for something else.
The guy thinks about it and, very enthusiastically, wishes he would understand women.
The genie than said, "Do you want your highway to have 2 or 4 lanes?"

when you go back to the doctor, tell him you "have neck pains." Then call a personal injury lawyer, he'll be delighted that you went to the hospital in the first place.
of course, that may only work here in the US

Thanks for the support, guys.
It is confirmed that yes, indeed, the insurance company will fix it. The damage appears to be around $5000 or so. So all I have to do is sit back and wait a month for the work to be completed.
Yes, the MP3 player continued to play after I was hit, but the stereo ceased operation. I had been having problems with it randomly shutting off, so the loose wire was probably just jarred too much.
As for my neck, it seems much better now. I will be going to the doctor sometime this week to make sure. Unfortunately, in Canada we have this thing called "no-fault", which basically says I can't sue the lady.
And yes, women should not be on the road.
