The most common accident. When "A" is hit from behind by "B", it is a rear end accident. "A" can be in motion, or not, it doesn"t matter.

Rear end - all in motion
Rule 9.3 a-b

C

A three car chain reaction. Even though B is pushed into A, he is still 50% at fault. We also explained it "because it is unknown if B was travelling too close to A" but that explanation is not official.

This rules says all cars in motion. Adjusters often use it when A is stopped. We"re unsure sure if that is correct or not.

In any case, this rule is often debated. It depends B still being in motion. Adjusters will often ask driver A, "how many bumps did you feel?" to try and get confirmation.
