When traveling 20 mph upon avoiding hitting a patch of ice consumer therefore depressed the brake pedal when the driver side air bag deployed forcing the occupant arms and hands to be forced off the steering wheel causing loss of vehicle control resulting in an accident. Consumer has contacted the dealer, dealer states due to dislocation of the air bag sensors.
