The truck was traveling on the interstate and the driver had to brake for heavy traffic ahead. Without reason both side airbags deployed. The airbag deployment caused the driver to veer off the interstate and onto the frontage rd.there was no impact with anything prior to airbag deployment. Luckily there was no impact after deployment either. The driver stated that he was hurt by the airbags. I rendered aid to this driver and completed a incident report.

Entire instrument cluster went out while driving causing loss of needed information such as speed and other pertinent information. Dealer says there is a tsb that the entire truck has to be re-flashed including all modules in the vehicle because it does not recognize the instrument cluster. During this time, all safety systems flashed and appeared to be inactive. Air bag, traction control, ABS, trailer braking etc. This needs to be investigated to see if a recall must happen. If we got in an accident during this occurrence who knows if any of the safety systems on the vehicle were functioning.
