So... I was hit today...

Sorry for the bad quality pics, I'll get better when I go to the towing yard where they took my baby... :( Just as I decided to keep it too!
CAI, Short shifter, Focus Racing header. All shot. And for the record I hate HICKS. This redneck slammed into me doing about 40. Didn't even hit his breaks. His Dakota was towed off with a busted Radiator... That's it.
The Durango that he plowed me into, his exhaust tip was shoved THROUGH my front bumper, and upon him driving off,... It pulled my bumper right off. And yeah, if you're not certain from the photos, my baby was totaled.

Oh man....Glad you are ok but jeez that sucks. Also, that'd a pretty serious issue that the airbag didn't go off in what appears to be a pretty serious accident. Is there anyway you could report that?

The air bag wont go off from a rear end collision. Yes your front got hit too, but needs to be of a decent impact in order to make it go off. That way it doesn't go off from fender benders. Sorry to see your foci get squished though :/

Damn, I'm really sorry. Glad you're alright though. The front looks pretty badly bent up. But I guess without actually being there we really can't tell whether the airbags should've gone off. Visually it looks like it should have.

In any case it wouldn't be the first time the airbags failed to deploy. It's more common than you think. I don't know whether it's faulty sensors or whether the sensors themselves have "blind spots" on the bumper, but it happens.

So, I should or shouldn't report it to Ford?
And yeah, with the exception of my neck being stiff and sore, I'm doing fine.
How hard did it hit in front you ask? It knocked the cigarette/ash tray holder out and all the way into the back seat. I'd say that's pretty damn hard.
