If a parked car is hit my a moving car, the moving car is obviously At Fault. If a moving car is hit by a car backing out of a space, the second car is at fault for failure to yeild, as the first car had right of way. If two cars are backing out and hit each other, it may be hard to determine who's at fault, as both driver's vision may have been compromised.

Can you sue the parking lot owner if you hit a car because the lot was overcrowded?

Accept responsibility for your actions. You hit a car because you either can't drive or you weren't being careful enough. That is your fault, not the fault of an overcrowded parking lot. Of course you can sue anyone for anything, but is that the proper thing to do. I think not.
