It should be the person in the very back who started the chain reaction.

However, because your car was there, don't be surprised if you get included in the defendants if the person in the front decides to sue.

Typically, the driver who hit the middle car will still be at fault, inless it's determined by a police accident report that you were following or parked too closely to the front vehicle. * A process referred to as the chain of causation determines who is at fault in a vehicle accident. In the case cited the driver of the car that created the collision would be responsible for all damages. Any traffic citations given to other driver's involved would have no bearing on the issue of fault.
