i'd say both you not that much but who wrecked it is the one to put the blame on

The insurance is for the car regardless of who is driving. It will be the first to pay. If it doesn't cover enough, the person driving can be tapped for the remainder. If the person driving does not have a license, the owner of the car has to pay out of their own pocket. The insurance company does not have to pay.

If you are the primary policy holder and someone else drives the car and gets into an accident is it your fault or theirs?

Fault does not really matter, the claim will go under the policy that the vehicle is insured under as long as the driver of the car had the owners permission to drive the vehicle. Be careful though, some policies are "named driver" policies and if the driver of the car was not listed in the policy, there may not be any coverage. If that is the case, and the driver has their own policy, you can try to attach to that policy.
