Unless the car that was hit in the rear is backing up - all rear end collisions are the fault of the driver who hit the rear of the other car. So something isn't right with your description. In other words, it is impossible for your son to cause someone to strike him in the rear unless your son is moving backward in reverse. In which case, even then - he would have hit the other driver not caused the other driver to hit him. In any event, if there was insurance to cover the damages and your son can get a letter to that effect from his agent and / or insurance company, most Assistant District Attorney's will consider dismissing a charge like that unless there was very serious personal injury involved. If you don't want to waste the better part of a day in court doing that, most traffic attorneys can handle this matter for a nominal flat rate fee.
