Q: The woman who hit my car claimed the only reason she swerved into me was because a coffee she'd ordered from a fast food

She was driving the car. She was the person responsible for the safe operation of her vehicle. She was the person responsible for the safe handling of hot coffee. If she can't drink coffee and drive safely, she should not try. So, no. I would not agree with the woman that hit you.
