I was the last car in a read end accident there were 2 car lengths in front of me before i moved. While waiting in line on a hill to pick up my child from school. I was in park waiting for the line to move when 2 cars pulled out to turn around. The line moved forward and I came out of park to move forward when I pressed on the brakes the pedal locked, I tried twice. Then I depressed the emergency brake. When I realized that was not going to work i tried to steer away from the cars in front but to no avail there was no time. I hit the car in front of me and she hit the car in front of her. The summons states that I followed too closely but I was not, there was 2 car lengths in front of me I just couldn't stop. how do i handle this? Thank you in advance.
