interesting...I rode with a buddy of mine in his focus and he also ran into someone else by accident. The bags deployed and we were going about 15-20. Same damage, like ir sounds, as yours. Sorry about the wreck by the way. If you were houston...or anywhere in TEXAS, I find no-One here can drive.

this was in northeast houston.i was on a bridge that goes over the hardy toll road in the outer turning lane a mini van was in the inner turning lane,light turns green so we take off(in order to make the green light on the other side of the bridge you have to accelerate to like 40 mph so i was. the lady ran the light,i hit her,she hit the minivan in the inner lane turning her van 180 degrees.my car wound up on the curb with one the passenger rear tire still on the street. best of all the lady who ran the light told the cops we ran the light........two cars ran the light at the same time with all cars behind us following.........she had no license or insurense.....wasn't even a U.S citizen

there are literally thousands of different variables that make airbags deploy or not.


sounds like she kind of clipped the side of your car, which wouldnt make the fronts deploy, but the sides, if you had them.

I dunno...but airbags are designed not to deploy if they would not help, or cause more harm than good.
