I don’t know if the collision happened before I got there or not, but there was definitely something going on beforehand. I’m not trying to escape all blame here, I hope I haven’t come off that way. I just don’t think this is a situation in which everyone else was just sitting in traffic and I just plowed into the back of them. The driver ahead slammed on his brakes and swerved to avoid something. I could hear someone else’s tires squealing before my brakes locked.I was in something similar a few years back 4 cars...I was the second from the back the guy in the back started it all. I'm not sure how you could have not started it if your in the back? Did someone reverse into you after the fact? Oh I reread your post you think the accident happened before you hit them? Why was your car not able to stop in time if the accident already happened? Certainly your reaction time should have allowed you to stop on time. Anyway sorry for your car man. Love the car and color! Hope you get it fixed soon and there is no frame damage!
There was a police cruiser in the median just behind the accident, so if they had a rear-facing camera, it’s possible. But wouldn’t that be shown in the report?It's really hard to place fault with cars having antilock brakes, most times there are no skid marks.
Smart move getting a lawyer to advise, no place nearby with a camera?
