My vehicle, driven by my step son, crossed the median, spun around and slammed backwards into a power pole. He hit with enough force to push the rear bumper and the trunk in almost 3 feet and yet the air bag didn't deploy. The sudden stop broke the front seat loose from the floor and ripped his glasses off his head and flung them into the back window. Fortunately he had his seat belt on, or the recoil would have sent him the forward momentum from the recoil would have sent him through the front window. Still the air bag did not deploy. The accident is still under investigation and it is unclear whether he was unconscious for a brief period of time from the accident.
