A car colliding with the rear part of another car parked outside the road with its rear inside

Q: One night, I was driving an agricultural tractor on the highway with a trailer behind it. As the trailer did not have any back lights or reflectors, I had to take the opposite side of the road to be able to use my front lights. While driving in this condition, a car came towards me and kept coming nearer until I was forced to (Part No. 21; Page No. 406) leave the main road while the trailer was still on it. The car collided with it and two of its passengers died. I was sentenced in absentia to one year in jail, but I wish to know the Islamic ruling on this. Should I make Kaffarah (expiation), manumit a bondsman, pay Diyah (blood money) to the deceased's families, or is there nothing due on me? Please answer us regarding the Right of Allah and the rights of the deceased's families. May Allah reward you good, extend your life and increase you in knowledge!

A: If the case is as you mentioned, you must pay the Diyah for each person whose death you caused. In addition, you must offer Kaffarah which is manumitting a believing bondsman, However, if you cannot, you must fast for two successive months for each person. You were negligent in driving your tractor on the opposite side of the road, and in leaving your trailer with no backlights.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
