I rear-ended a car that was already involved in a rear-end collision. A lady that was following her neice pulled in front of me to closely on the freeway. I preceeded to back off from her and almost immediately after pulling in front of me she locks her brakes up and swerves into the other lane. Directly in front of me was her neice that had already rear-ended someone in slow moving traffic and was already stopped. By her cutting me off I could not see the events that were unfolding in front of me. I did not have the ability to dodge the accident by swerving into the other lane as there were other vehicles beside me. I did not receive the ticket. The girl that I rear-ended received the ticket for not properly controlling speed and was labeled as the initiating event. Do I bear fault?
