If I own a car with no insurance on it and my friend wrecks it, can the other person in the wreck sue me?

I dumbly put a car in my name for a friend, and she were going to switch it back asap. She wrecked the car a few days later. I did not put the car on my insurance. The other guy’s lawyer told me if we don’t pay for the other vehicle, my friend and I would both get our license suspended. Can they do that to me just for owning the car?
