Unable to answer on these fact. If you were following too closely potentially, but it is hard to envision that. The police determination of fault is not determinative of negligence and responsibility for an accident in civil court. Have your insurance company sort it out.

That is why you need insurance. Police report is not conclusive. Standard procedure to claim against all cars behind.
