No. The state is not responsible for the accident or the driver. You can file suit against the uninsured motorist.

What is uninsured vehicle coverage?

Uninsured motorist coverage provides insurance coverage when you are hit by a person who has no insurance coverage. You uninsured motorist coverage will take the place of the insurance that the other person did not have and will cover your damages just like theirs should have if they had it. The only difference is that you will have a small deductible for property damage coverage.

Does uninsured motorist coverage cover an uninsured driver of the car in a single car accident?

No. Uninsured motorist coverage protects the owner of the vehicle which is damaged due to the actions of an uninsured driver of another vehicle (or damage caused by a hit-and-run driver). I think what you are asking is known as a 'permissive' driver - someone who was driving another person's vehicle with the owner's permission, but who is not actually named on the policy. The answer to this is 'probably' depending on the insurance company and the provisions of the policy itself, but if provided for would cover them like they were a named insured on the policy.

Will your uninsured motorist coverage cover an accident from an at fault unlicensed uninsured driver?

Yes. The initial trigger for entitlement to uninsured motorist benefits is involvement and injury in a motor vehicle collision with an uninsured motorist. According to state law, there may be other requirements as well (such as the existence of a permanent injury or significant scarring), but lack of insurance by the adverse party is the first requirement. Note also that, again depending upon state law, if you as the injured party negligently caused or contributed to the collision, your recovery may be reduced accordingly.
