Who is at fault?
I was in the process of backing up into my driveway and a driver coming down the road hit me. The roads were icy and the other drive could not stop and slide into my car. Who would be at fault. This took place on a residential street.

The driver who hit you is at fault in the accident. That driver was driving too fast on the icy road.
I assume there wasn't any police report. If there had been a police report, it would state which party caused the accident.
