Driving down a hill when my vechile was unable to stop due to icy/snow roads. Once I notice I was unable to stop while going 20 miles, I threw my hazards on & sounded my horn. The vechile in front of me Blantly stops in the middle of roads. I had enough room to avoid rear ending her so I went around trying to avoid, instead side swiping a car n hit another vechile & ultimately ending up on curb . What can or should I do ? Who is at fault
