I know this because I went through Driving School about 2 and a half years ago... and went to traffic school for two days because of my ticket, no more than 3 months ago. The only exception to this rule is if the car in front cuts off the rear car and steps on the brakes.
But according to the story from your point of view, you were speeding... so you were breaking the law...
Basically, you should get in trouble for speeding... but she should get in trouble for speeding, tailgating, and doing a hit and run. I guess if you wanted to screw her over, you could... but is it really worth the hassle?
That's the key point here, and (from what Baseballer02 said) that was the woman's story. That's why this will most likely be a mutual-fault accident.
Again, you could potentially get her in trouble, but what would be the point? You would have to have witnesses to conclusively prove that she was solely responsible for the accident, and with your admitted "guilt" of speeding, I really don't see a very positive outcome for you.
I think this situation sucks, I think this scummy piece of Jerry Springer white trash probably is a scummy piece of Jerry Springer white trash and it stinks big-time that she would get away with hitting you like that, but in the end I doubt seriously there's a happy ending to this situation for you.
Sorry, man. I feel for you.
