It depends on the state, but at least where I live, the insurance of the stolen car pays for damages. Check it out with your insurance agent. He/she should be able to give you that information, even if your liability won't cover it.

Assuming the stolen car was insured, the stolen cars insurance would be responsible. If the stolen car was not insured, the driver, if located would be responsible. If not located then the owner would probably be held responsible. Hopefully the struck vehicle is insured for "uninsured motorist" coverage. Filing the report after the accident would document the theft, but not neccesarily clear the owner of responsibility.

If impound was caused by your vehicle parked illegally, then the impound lot or the towing company could be held responsible. If it was impounded because it was retrieved as a stolen vehicle, then no one can be held responsible. However, in both cases, the personal belongings in the vehicle can be covered by either your own auto insurance under the Comprehensive portion of your policy or by your own homeowners/renters insurance under the Personal Property portion of your policy. They are subject to your deductible/s.

If a car that was reported stolen hits your car why would the stolen car's insurance company refuse to pay for damages?

Probably because the owner did not exercise normal precautions and by leaving the keys in the vehicle actually participated in its theft. Call that lawyer who advertises on TV. If he can't get the insurance to pay, he'll get a judgment against the owner. The owner of a stolen vehicle is not responsible for the actions of the thief that stole their vehicle. If there is no liability on the owner, the insurance company does not owe the claim for property damage to others.
