3 car accidents whose responsible. Is it the second car or is it the 3 vehicle. 3 vehicle ran away from the scene .

Asked over 1 year ago - Orlando, FL

The second car doesn't want to pay the insurance for the first car damages to the rear of the car. Even though the 3 vehicle ran away from the scene. So should the second car pay for the damages of the first car ? Both cars were at the traffic light when the 3 vehicle crash into the second vehicle & left the scene of the crime
