Impossible to know from the information you provided. However, even though his car had no contact with the other cars, if his negligent actions caused or contributed to the other cars crashing then he could be held liable. What they could collect could be nominal to in the millions or more depending on the exact nature and degree of negligence / contribution in his actions and the damage / injury to the other cars, property and people.
