There is an important part of this story missing... was this
a 4 way stop? Did the other person have a stop sign? If they
did not have a stop sign, then it is, in fact, your mother's
fault. Unless the other party was driving at an unreasonable
or excessive speed, which would have caused her not to see
him, begin a turn believing nobody was there, and resulting
in him slamming into her. Likely the damages on the
vehicles will tell that story.
