This is called a voluntary repossession. What happens is the car will be auctioned in the condition that it is in and say you payoff is $12,000.00 and the auction for the car brings $9,000.00, there will be a judgment issued in the amount of $3,000.00. This will also stick with you on your credit.

Can you hold a person liable if person is excluded on insurance an gets into wreck?

What do you mean hold them liable. If you gave them permission to drive your vehicle and you had excluded them on your policy, the insurance company will not pay any part of the claim. More than likely you, as owner of the vehicle will be the primary target. If the accident involves another car you will be primarily responsible for their damages and injuries as well as the damage to your vehicle. You can try to implicate the driver but it is your vehicle, your insurance and exclusion that you signed, and you gave this person permission to drive your vehicle, knowing what you do about them.

Your liability insurance does not cover medical expenses in your vehicle no matter who is driving. Depending on your state and the regulations there, this could vary somewhat. Liability is coverage for the party and passengers in a vehicle that you hit if you are at fault. If you are talking about a person in the other car then yes, but if you mean a person in your car the answer is no. You need to purchase "Medical Payments" or PIP coverage to provide medical coverage fro those in your car.
