Understandable thinking, but definitely just a coincidence. Pity there was no audio. I'm assuming there were was a bit of cussing involved?
Were you rear ended as well, or just the unlucky tail-end charlie?
Sucks about the 100% fault, but if US law is the same as Australian law in this situation, it's automatically deemed that the driver who rear ends someone else is at fault
Even thought the silver car was the catalyst, I think you'll still be stuck with the 100% fault.
Maintaining safe distances is a good idea in theory, but in heavy traffic like that one persons safe distance is another cars opportunity to cut in and cause a concertina (as evidenced by the silver car).
