Dear All, I was involved in a car accident. The facts of the case as follow: Location: At a side road joining into a major road. The side road slopes downwards on a 10 degree gradient to the major road. My car was the first vehicle awaiting to exit into the major road. Background of Accident: I felt a shudder from my car. Apparently, my vehicle was hit on the rear section by the second car driven by a Ms MJ. Damages: There was severe damages to my car on the bumper about 0.3m wide. Suspected it was a point load acting on the flat bumper. There was no real damage to her car except noticed a ROUND indentation mark appearing on the bumper. There was a hard point in the form of a screw behind that bumper from subsequent investigation. Claim by 2nd Driver: Ms MJ according to her report that I reversed up-slope and collided with her front causing her car to move backwards despite her applying her brakes fully and that she was in the fully stopped position with a reasonable distance behind me. Question: I realized that in many accidents, the car that got hit hardly moved when the brakes were applied. I was trying to determine it was possible or not possible for my low powered Honda Hybrid reversing upslope to overcome her car's brake holding strength/inert weight to move her vehicle backwards. I checked out the accident area and I estimated the distance between my vehicle and her vehicle when in the stationary should not be more than 2 m apart. I tried various methods from the internet and could not determine a fully satisfactory answer. Hope someone could help. Thank you very much. Some info about the cars: Honda Civic Hybrid: Weight about 1,380 kg and acceleration from 0 - 96 km per hr about 12.4 seconds. Honda Fit: Weight about 1,200 kg and acceleration from 0 -96 km per hour about 9.3 seconds. Braking distance from 96 m per hr to 0 about 41m.
