What would happen to a driver that comes from another state and drives here in California?

I have a drivers license and auto insurance in California. But lets say that someone comes from another state and drives here in California and that person has less than the minimum amount required here in CA which is $15,000 dollars of financial responsibility in the insurance policy and that person gets a ticket or has an accident would that person get in trouble?
