Will i be covered by his insurance

3-17-2018 and i was driving today 3-
18-2018 on the freeway and the hood
flew open and caused me to crash. I
contacted his insurance with the
information he gave me when i bought the
car. Is there any way to get my truck
fixed through his insurance. Or if i
decide to seek medical for the injurys
that accrued

If the title of the vehicle was already transferred then I am pretty sure that his insurance company is going to try and deny coverage.  You should have had insurance in place before you took possession. What I would seek to find out is why the hood flew open and if there were any prior incidences.  Good luck.
