You have to pay the Diia to his family and if they forgive, u don't have to. And in the case of killing non muslim by mistake u shouldn't do kaffarah but u have to pay diia. But if he was really accuesed of the accident and his family and u are convinced with that, u don't have to pay. But ask Allah 4 forgive. Wa Allah a'lam

a court can be wrong if you feel like you still could have been involved with the end result or your car did do some damage that caused the non-muslim to die then you need to pay the blood money if you know that you didnt do anything aand it was entirely their fault then you dont have to but there was a story of some jews that the muslims accidenty killed and even though they were non-muslims the prophet still ordered them to pay the jews families the blood money so this proves that non-muslims recive blood money too if the blame is on the muslim

If a Muslim kills a none Muslim whether be accident or none accident, there is no Qisas because there is a hadith which says, there is no Qisas for a Kafir.

For your case the court proves that the none Muslim were to blame the accident and that you were free from it, therefore, there is no diya compensation and compensation would not have applied to you anyway unless there was a contract with a none Muslim I mean a Dhimi.

Also the Jew that was killed by the Sahabi was a Muslim but they did not knew he became Muslim and when they saw him he gave them the Salam after hearing it the sahabi said he is only saying it to save himself so they killed him and then Allah revealed this verse, [It is not for a believer to kill a believer except by mistake; and whosoever kills a believer by mistake, he must set free a believing slave and submit compensation (blood money) to the deceased's family unless they remit it. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you and he was a believer, the freeing of a believing slave (is prescribed); and if he belonged to a people with whom you have a treaty of mutual alliance, then compensation (blood money) must be paid to his family, and a believing slave must be freed. And whoso finds this beyond his means, he must fast for two consecutive months in order to seek repentance from Allah. And Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise] [4 v92]

But your case there is no compensation to the family and you should not worry about it, therefore, Praise Allah for giving you a second chance in life so you can obey Him and earned His pleasure and reward. Allah knows best.
