its too late now, i don't think theres a legal way to get his personal info from that plate with out filing a formal report of what happened, and even if you do its completely your word against his and he might not have even realized what happened so unless he's an extremely honest and trusting guy he probably won't be required to pay... i'd say now that he's gone it won't be worth your time for the hassle

$400 sucks but i guess its not the end of the world
