It depends on what your policy says, and what caused the roof to cave in. If it caved in because it was not properly maintained, then the answer is most probably no (say for example the garage is 50 years old and the roof caved in because it just rotted away). If it caved in because it was covered with heavy snow and ice, or a storm or other act of God caused it, then it may be covered if your policy covers outbuildings or other improvements on your property. Start by talking to your insurance agent, but don't give up if they tell you it isn't covered. Read your policy. If it sounds like there is any possibility that your policy might cover it, appeal the denial of the claim and consult an attorney.

Your garage insurance should be covered by home owners insurance or renters insurance. I am not sure you would need liability insurance in a garage though, because no one else would be hurt in there.

Since it was caused by the vehicle, the vehicle insurance should cover it. Most home owners insurance companies would probably make a claim against the auto insurance company, if they covered it.
