I am sorry to hear this.

He will not be charged by the police.

But he will be required to pay for the pole. His insurance will not cover him because you were impaired. And as well he will have to pay for any damage to his own car.

That means that you should be paying him back for any costs he incurs and if you do not agree and he wants you to do so he could sue you successfully.

Does that answer your question?
