I was number 3. I assume this is how these be numbered as number 1 would be the instigator. Everyone is OK, just going to take time to deal with stuff. What a hassle. The CHP officer said he got 5 crashes in 10 minutes.

Bumper to bumper traffic caused by, you guessed it, another car accident about a mile up. Car. 1, rammed into 2 causing me to bump into 4.
So keep a car length distance at less than 5mph traffic? That's your suggestion?

101?
Glad you are ok enough to post about it. 
Keeping distance ahead of you is impossible unless other vehicles do the same. The entitled drivers who cut into that space, cut over without a signal  or weave in and out of lanes are sometimes the cause of accidents. Idiots, every one.

  Either I don't get the new math or something is missing. If nobody rammed into you, #3, and you bumped into 4, that's your fault for following too close.

I've bee trying real hard to keep adequate spacing in traffic. It's just hard to accept that people will cut you off for being safe. I try not to let it bother me, but that's a work in progress.

car 1 was the instigator. miserly was car 3. he just didn't spell out all the dominos, as he already gave the overview

Ans thanks all. Everyone requires no immediate medical attention at this time.

C'mon! If you are the winner of some silly bet, please be kind to the rest of us. To put it kindly, the avatar is grating on the nerves (and I have nerves of steel).

I agree. I lost a bet, the terms of which required me to change my avatar. Which I did. As you stated, duration was not part of the terms.

rated:
Legally speaking, if duration was not included in the terms, having met the stipulation, you could change the avatar again after all of 1 second has elapsed.

Does a fender bender involving 4 cars really constitute a "Pile up"? I was expecting something a little more dramatic. Lots of blood and screaming and maybe an explosion or two. Fake News! SAD!

Well, until there is a definition of pile up, this is it! And there will be screaming because insurance companies are involved now.

it could definitely be fake news if the last time it happened it was not a pile up, but then this time it happened and it's a pile up

miserly said:   got a message from the insurance company from driver #1. he said they sent a check for the $1800 and change. Thsi is the KBB value for the car at highest condition. i guess i'll just take that. i suppose the FWF way would be to negotiate for more, but i don't really feel like spending more time on this.
I bumped an offer from the gecko $1k with a couple hours of work.
