Only A is responsible for breaking things immediately and arbitrarily. If he breaks things middle of the road he is perhaps insane.

There is no guarantee that either B or A will win the case, but there is guarantee that only one will definitely will win the case.

According to the driving rules, the driver of following car B is supposed to keep safe distance at all times, hence in this case B car driver is at fault.

The query is hypothetical and fabricated starting from the word "suppose" means not true / real.

Hypothetical questions can also be asked here in order to educate oneself.  If I am a driver I would like to know what the law is. Normally the law is as Mr. Kishor Mehta says. But often the police chargesheet the vehicle in front, which is not correct. My son had such a problem in USA. As it was a small fine he did not contest. The driver of the vehicle in front can claim damages from the insurer of the vehicle behind. But insurance companies always contest and it is difficult to get compensation.

It is called sleep apnea. Consult a psychiatrist.

It is not advisable to seek remedies for chronic or acute maladies on online platforms, it will be in the interests of the queriest to immediately consult a medical expert.

As I understand that there were 2 cars one behind the other. The car in the front had 4 passengers. You along with 4 others were travelling in the car behind. You were drivig the car.  The car in the front hit the divider.  Your car also hit the divider but did not hit the car in front. One person in the car in front died. Did he die on the spot or died later in hospital?  Was he driver  of the car? If he was not the driver was he on the front seat or back seat? Did that car have air bags? Did they open? Were you or any of your passengers injured? Did you take treatment in the hospital?

You have taken photo of the front of your car and rear of the other car. Preserve the photographs with record of date and time. You report the matter to your insurer and ask their surveyor to survey the damage and give a report. Wait for the actual repair. The investigating officer from the police may come to you. After his examination of your car get a written permission from him to repair the car.

As a person in the car in front died, this would become a police case and you cannot avoid going to the court. The relatives of the deceased also may join the case. You may get a charge sheet in due course. What can be done further will depend on the chargesheet. I suggest that you engage a lawyer who has experience in motor accident cases.
