Morning 

accident related question 

the scenario: three car are involved in an accident and no person injured.

car A which is the first car is in front traveling with its hazards on at a lower speed like 40kmh is being followed by car B and car C then all of the sudden car A divided to suddenly stop eventually car B will decrease the speed to also stop behind car A as it wasn’t safe to overtake but car C could not be able to stop safely behind car B mybe due to speed or rather not in an safe following distance.

so car C crashed hard onto car B which is in a safe decreasing state to safely stop behind an already stopped car A but because of being hit hard at the back by car C then car B got to be being pushed to knock carA.

in this scenario according to RSA road laws:1)who’s on the wrong 2)who pays who for damages
