You're both at fault, but I think you more than the other driver because they have the right of way when proceeding down a street.
By pulling out of your driveway and cutting them off, you were negligent in not yielding to them. You obviously left your driveway without having adequate time to safely avoid this other driver.
The other driver is contributorily negligent since they were speeding.
