Depending on the state you are in, most states have a kind of "auto At Fault" for anyone who rear ends you. Meaning as long as you got their insurance info, and file a claim with your insurance guys, their guys should send an inspector to your house within a day or two to asses the damage and give an estimate for repairs. Just try to remember to let your insurance company handle it and whatever you do don't talk to the other person in the accident other then to give them your info.

the driver that rear ended the car. The person that rear ended will probably get hit with a following too close (if they weren't they would have noticed the other vehicle slow down or stop) and an At Fault Accident and the car that got rear ended would probably get an equipment violation for their brake lights out.

Who is liable in a rear end collision if the car that was rear ended was parked?

As long as the parked vehicle is parked properly and not illegally parked in any manner, then the vehicle that rear-ended the parked car is at fault. Now if the parked car is sitting illegally (such as double parked or parked in a no parking zone, etc.) then the parked car is at fault or even both the parked car AND the car that hits it are BOTH at fault.

Can an accident be covered by 2 insurance companies?

Yes. Say that you were invovled in a 3 (or more) car accident, where one car stopped short, was rear-ended by your car, and then your car was rear-ended by the car behind you. Your insurance company would pay for the back of the car you hit and the front of your car. The insurance of the driver behind you would pay for the back of your car and the front of the car behind you.
