A common scenario of this kind of accident happens when a vehicle fails to reduce speed on an icy road and ends up hitting another vehicle, and pushes it into many other stopped cars, much like the situation above. Pileup collisions result in thousands in damages and many claims need to be filed with insurance companies.
