No crash/incident. Received increase in insurance premium for 2004 Buick Century. Called insurance company which stated the increase was a result of company having increased personal injury claims for failure of airbags to deploy during accidents. Although I am not reporting any accident, I indicate today's date of T his report as 12/15/2008 below. Number of deaths & persons injured are unknown; however, I placed the number 1 in each category to "proceed" to the next window. Further, I do not know any details of those accidents as reported by my insurance company; therefore, the "no" categories are left in the default indication.

My parent's vehicle, a 2004 Buick Century, collided with a guard rail on an entrance ramp to I-81 in christiansburg, va. They were wearing seat belts/shoulder harness. Main impact was front left bumper, which was pushed in ~ 3 feet in a narrow indentation; hood was crumpled. There was damage to left side of vehicle. The air bags did not deploy. Both passengers sustained injuries and were taken to local hospital's emergency room. I suspect their injuries would have been less sever had the air bags deployed. Damage to vehicle is very extensive. Updated 12/05/06.
