Rear-end auto collisions occur when one vehicle is hit from behind by another vehicle. Various factors determine how serious these types of car accidents will be, including the speed of both vehicles involved and the size and weight of each vehicle. Rear-end collisions can be especially damaging when a smaller vehicle is hit by a much larger vehicle or when a stopped vehicle is hit by another vehicle traveling at high speed. Rear-end collisions can easily cause multi-vehicle accidents that work like a chain reaction — a vehicle gets hit from behind, forcing it to hit the vehicle in front of it. In rear-end collisions, either driver can be at fault.
