If you were both on the same road, travelling in the same direction, and the other car rear-ended you as you slowed down, then the other drive is liable.
If the other driver's witnesses are passengers in her car, they are not independent, so their acount doesn't affect the situation.
Pass the information on yo your insurance company, and let them sort it out.
There seems to be a contradiction in the account.
You say you were hit from behind as you slowed to pull out but the other driver says you pulled out on her.
Do you mean you pulled out onto a road and a driver who was on that road went into the back of you because they couldn't stop in time?
That's a little different from if you stopped for a junction and sombody hit you from behind.
