How to make a small fortune racing ... start with a large one.

Go into a corner with a little less speed and come out faster

Randy,
It sounds like you did everything right. The most important thing is to try to keep him conscious and support the spine/neck as well as possible, and not to try to remove anything that might cause other injuries in the removal process.
I hope he turns out to be okay. His bike doesn't look like it was terribly damaged. One of the unfortunate things about this is, even though she may have slammed on her breaks, his insurance company will claim him at fault because he hit the back of her car. That's the same thing that happened to me. (Insurance rep... "You should have anticipated the person in front of you was going to do something stupid"!)

Sabrina fair...
Listen where thou art sitting
under the glassie, cool, translucent wave,
in twisted braids of lillies knitting
the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair.
