There is no way for us to say who is at fault, since it depends on the specific facts. For example, how far out ahead of your husband did he pull out? There is a wide difference between pulling out 30 feet in advance or 100 feet, etc. How fast was your husband going--was he exceeding the speed limit or going faster than was safe for conditions, which would mean he compromised his ability to stop. What was visibility like? Etc. The facts determine who was at fault.
