No fault of my own accident in a new vehicle i was about to lease

I was in an accident in a car about I was about to get on lease from a dealership, It was at no fault of my own ( someone reversed into me at a stop sign. ) I haven't signed the lease yet, just transferred it into my name and got insurance on it the day before the accident. Am I now obliged to sign that lease or can I still drop the car back to the dealership?

your insurance should cover the accident.
It is your responsibility.
Because the car ownership has been transferred to your name. Good luck with it.
