It sucks, but it was an accident, I didn't slam on brakes or anything but it was at the bottom of a little hill, and the van she was driving was much heavier and harder to stop than the mustang she is used to that will stop on a dime.

There's a reason using cell phones is illegal in most states. You and your mother are both idiots. And before anyone says "Maybe they were using hands-free, dumbass!" those still distract you and increase your risk of a collision.
No I think the FML means that they had the conversation and hung up. Then at the next light the driver is response to to earlier call decided to stop at a yellow and got rear ended. This is a case of a woman driver, not cell phone use, though the two usually go hand in hand.
Agree with 41. From the way it reads, they were no longer on the cell phone. OP's mom rear ended them because she was afraid to get left behind again. As a matter of fact, had they still been on the phone, in this case it would have stopped the collision from happening as OP could have explained they were about to stop at the light.
