The car that is moving is the only one with the power to avoid the accident therefore, the other car is At Fault. They may say they weren't moving as well though. Good luck.

Drivers of moving cars are presumed to be at fault when they hit parked or stationary cars or other objects. This is usually reasonable, because the driver of the parked car can't immediately move out of the way, and the driver of the moving car can. It is part of all state laws that drivers must avoid accidents when they are able to.
