Hi,

It's a sad week for me, I crashed my Focus in a electrical pole last week, I fell unconscious for a fraction of a second and hit a pole at approx 60km/h.

The car is a full loss, and I will get a new SE 2015 for free.
Here some pictures of before, after, and near future.















The 2015 is already waiting for me at the dealership, I just need the approval from the doctor to regain the right to drive a car...



I am left with a crack in my sternum and a sh1t load of pain + all sort of test for my heart because I felt unconscious...

Thanks and sorry for my bad English.

Wow! Get well soon.

I like your bronze 18s, at least you can re-use them on your new focus.

Yeah what's up with the driver side airbag? The side bags and knee bag went off okay.

Yes that was the first question I asked, I got told that there is a lot of sensor controlling the airbags, there is also 2 speed for the ejection of the steering airbag. And to tell the truth I am pretty sure it would of been worst if the airbag deploy in my face, the belt did her job even is it crack my sternum...

Sorry again for my shitty english.

There is no reason at all for the passenger side airbag to deploy with a front crash...
He meant the side curtain airbag deployed.

Something is wrong here. That is catastrophic front end damage and the steering wheel airbag did not deploy?

EDIT: I see he fell unconscious before the wreck but still, the G forces were huge.

No, he said he fell unconscious. Ie, there's something else going on with him. He lost consciousness and this happened as a result.
My FIL did the exact same thing a couple years ago while driving a semi. He ran into an electric transmission line, took out power for the northern half of Wyoming for a while and discovered he had a heart condition...

You know....there is a much easier and less painful way of getting a 2015 model. Ever heard of a trade-in? Just kidding! [:)] Glad you made it out alive. Ket well soon.

Impacts with a pole or tree are very hard for a car's airbag system to deploy for since it's such a small area of impact. Not all the sensors feel the full impact and think it's just a minor crash. Furthermore, by the looks of the car, it hit on the PS and probably swung around the pole lessening the force of the impact. I'm just guessing at this but considering the the OP only suffered minor injuries, the airbag was largely unnecessary and may have made the situation worse if it had deployed.

BTW. Glad your alright, it could have been a lot worse. Get well and I hope you can figure out what happened so you can move on with your life. At least your getting a nice, new car out of it.
