The side air bag failed to deploy out the air bag door cover, when the vehicle hit a curb on rainy night, instead the air bag deployed down the door and blew off the entire door panel. Injures were caused as a result of the door trim which flew off and hit the passenger in the ribs. Photos attached. A field engineer took photos and the vehicle was being used in a training session being held there.
