As long as the parked vehicle is parked properly and not illegally parked in any manner, then the vehicle that rear-ended the parked car is At Fault. Now if the parked car is sitting illegally (such as double parked or parked in a no parking zone, etc.) then the parked car is at fault or even both the parked car AND the car that hits it are BOTH at fault.
