According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), there were 118,029 drivers involved in rear-end injury car accidents and 405 drivers involved in rear-end collisions with fatalities in 2011.

These accidents happen when a rear driver crashes into the car in front of them. Typically, in rear-end accidents, the rear drier is at fault. Perhaps they were following too closely, speeding, or distracted. However, some circumstances would make the front driver liable. For example, if that driver was reversing when the accident occurred.
